About this run route

Start / Finish

Three different points as indicated

The three routes are all based in the area of York Racecourse and offer easy running on a variety of surfaces. Each route starts in a different location however, as they are circular it is possible to join at any point. The routes can also be linked together to create longer distances.

The Yellow 1 mile route is all off road on varied gradients within the trees adjacent to Tadcaster Road. Trail shoes would be helpful when the ground is wet and it is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

Two permanent signs depicting the routes are erected. The first is at the start of the Yellow route, adjacent to the Marriott Hotel and the second on the Blue route, close to the finish of York parkrun.

Run York organise a beginner to 10k group on Monday evenings at 6.30pm from the Marriott Hotel.

Please note:

The layout and usage of the marked 3-2-1 running routes is the responsibility of the local authority or further education establishment that purchases the route marking signs and usual health and safety and duty of care considerations should be followed in laying out open, even-surfaced, easy-to-follow, safe, accurate, well lit routes at all times - with the landowner’s permission. RunTogether will not provide materials with which to attach the markers.
