Yorkshire Marathon – 14 October 2018
The Yorkshire Marathon is one of the UK’s most popular marathons, with places selling out in five consecutive years. Demand in 2018 is set to be equally high, so move fast or you may be disappointed.
The Yorkshire Marathon very quickly established itself as one of the highlights of the North’s sporting year. This popular and picturesque run, with fantastic PB potential, takes participants past some of the beautiful city of York’s splendid historic sites and along scenic country lanes, making it an attractive prospect for runners of all abilities.
Described by the Daily Mirror as the Number 1 Alternative to the London Marathon and by the Guardian as a course on which to smash your PB, this race has written its own place in the UK running calendar.
Achieve a coveted personal best or simply be spurred on by great support and entertainment around the route – the Yorkshire Marathon has all the ingredients to make this an unforgettable experience.

Ben Nevis is the highest point in Scotland and the British Isles, standing at the lofty height of 1,343m. Fort William, on the southern edge of the Great Glen, is our base for the weekend.
Starting at Land’s End on the south-westerly tip of England, you will cover roughly 1,000 miles, pedalling your way through Cornwall, over Dartmoor and north along the Welsh border. After skirting the Lake District into Scotland, you will finally end at John O’Groats.
You’ll set off through the fabulous Lake District scenery – by canoe, then bike and on foot around Haystacks, before returning to bikes once more to finish the route.
Skydive – 15 September 2018
Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity is calling all daredevils to take on the challenge of a lifetime and jump out of a plane to help raise money to fund specialist equipment, training and services for the benefit of all patients and their families.
You will be taking part in a Tandem skydive. This allows you to enjoy one minute of adrenaline-fuelled freefall harnessed to the front of a BPA-qualified instructor.
We ask you to raise a minimum amount of £400.
This amount covers the cost of the Tandem jump which is £200 and a minimum donation of £200 that will come to the charity. Every extra penny that you raise over the minimum comes straight to us, so please try to raise as much as you possibly can! We can give you lots of help with your fundraising and will provide you with a charity t-shirt to jump in! You can also opt to self-fund the jump, meaning that you pay the fee, and all of the sponsorship you raise comes direct to the charity.
For more information and to join our team, please email email@example.com or call 01423 555641.
