Following the huge success of the inaugural Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve committed to sponsor the event for another two years.
The event that took place on Sunday 20th October and included over 6,000 runners was organised by the team behind the previously successful Run for All 10k series and Leeds half Marathon, both of which are part of the enduring legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson CBE. Jane raised almost £2million pounds by completing a series of amazing sporting challenges, despite being diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer.
