Spectators due to descend on city’s streets

Have your say

Thousands of supporters and spectators expected to line the streets cheering on the competitors.

Organisers have set up spectator points to ensure people can get a good view of the spectacular event.

The marathon starts and finishes at the University of York’s Heslington campus. Its route travels through the historic city centre – passing through the medieval walls – and takes runners north eastwards out of the city.

A number of routes will be sealed off to allow the event to go ahead. More details can be found at www.theyorkshiremarathon.com/news

Many spectators will wish to cheer on family or friends and might look to do so out on route as well as at the start and finish. For more information visit www.theyorkshiremarathon.com
