THE race is on to grab a place in this year’s Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon.

Runners who pre-registered can get a place in the pre-sale event from 9am today, with places going on general sale on January 6.

The marathon takes place in York on October 9 and has been a sell-out success every year since its launch in 2013.

Charlie Tatman, event director, said: “Demand is expected to be very high.”

The marathon is part of Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All events. The late campaigner raised almost £2m for charity by tackling a series of challenges despite being diagnosed with cancer.
