As preparing and racing a Marathon is a very tough experience we will return to York in 2020 to ensure we operate in liaison with England Athletics.
As many of our members are invited to run in the England vs Celtic Nations Masters International Challenge it makes sense for us to incorporate our Champs within their Challenge, thereby allowing you to run a spring Marathon with adequate time to recover for York .
Personally Walter was impressed with York and if you decide a Marathon is your next challenge in life, why not enter York and take advantage of the early bird offer at £45-00 which ends at midnight on Thursday 31st October 2019 .
