The Asda Foundation Yorkshire Marathon has proved a hit from day one, quickly establishing itself as a highlight of the White Rose County’s sporting year. The since the inaugural event in 2013, the marathon peaks its numbers annually, as we aim to set thousands of runners off through the beautiful streets of York.

The Yorkshire Marathon has everything you need to take away a little bit of that famous Yorkshire Spirit. Take in historic sites such as the York Minster and the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside as you take to this picturesque route. Listen out for the locals who come out to give you an “EY UP!” to cheer you along – and raise money for students or mental health at the University of York, where the race starts and finishes.

NOTE: There is a £350 recommended fundraising target for taking part in this event. After registering here, you will receive an email from a member of the fundraising team at York, who will provide you with a unique link that you’ll need to complete your registration on the event.

Join us at Millennium Fields to help maintain and improve this award winning grassland site.

We’ll be doing various tasks on the grassland and small woodland to maintain and improve these areas for both wildlife and people. This month we’ll be starting our summer scythe, cutting back the grass and raking up all of the cuttings. We’ll do this bit by bit to make sure the wildflowers have a chance to flourish before we mow and to make sure the wildlife still has some shelter.

Any age and ability welcome. Under 13s must be accompanied by an adult and 13-17 year olds need parental consent.

Free entry.

These sessions are supported by the Growing Green Spaces fund. Growing Green Spaces is a small grants programme funded by City of York Council and managed by York CVS.
