The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon 2014 is just around the corner

Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon 2014 In just 2 days the second Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon takes place on the streets in and around York. Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success and we’re going to build on that this year, with more runners, more support and a special prize draw for those in attendance.

The elite runners

Last year’s race was won by Edwin Korir in a great time 2:13:31. Amongst those hoping to follow in his footsteps are elite runners Girma Assefa from Ethiopia and Cosmas Kigen from Kenya.  Both of these runners are taking part in their first races in the UK and are looking forward to challenging at the front of the field. Alongside these world class athletes we have a group of our own Plusnet staff taking to the course, with some taking part in the full marathon and others representing Plusnet in the Northern Gas Networks corporate relay. We’ll be posting a round-up of events early next week, so check back on Monday to see how the runners performed.

Come show your support

To push the runners on we want YOU to come out and show your support.  We’ll have spectator zones, entertainment and photo booths around the course as well as inflatable bangers to make some noise to cheers the runners on! There are Plusnet motivation stations at Dunnington and a Minster FM roadshow at St Sampsons Square if you want to get involved in the entertainment around the event. If you’re in the York area, come on down this Sunday and cheer the runners on, you can see what’s on around the course on the map below. 2014_route_map Are you running, or know someone who is?

Hi Gini, Sorry you're unhappy with the service you've received. If an account isn't paid on the billing date we provide a 14 day grace period by default, if you pay within this period your service will continue without restrictions. Unfortunately if the bill is outstanding at the end of this period then restrictions would start to be applied to your account. We believe that giving a 14 day grace period is a fair way of dealing with missed payments and gives customers 2 weeks to pay for their services. Chris Plusnet
Yes I realise that and I have got into a rut of paying that way so I pay on the 14 the day each month, but to be fair you have had many fivers off me in the past for cutting me off .....but I just need two more days as my money is put in on wed and I've only asked for an extension once before so two days would not of killed you but it would of made a long standing customer happynisnt that a companies goal to occasionally waver policies and go with loyalty it's hardly a big deal, well I didn't think it was but your company has made it that way......terrible customer care, I now have to borrow to pay on time and I dont know if I can that means I will lose two days trading is that a way to treat your long standing customers?
No help sad times I'm happy you can afford to lose customers....

I'm sorry you feel like we're not helping you Gini, however a 14 day grace period is quite a long period to offer already.
'Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon takes place on the streets in and around York' Good, no traffic chaos in Sheffield then :-)
