Thousands of runners took part in the first ever Plusnet Yorkshire marathon yesterday. Among those was our very own Christine Talbot who ran as part of a celebrity relay team.
Around 6,000 runners are tackling the 26 mile route through York and Stamford Bridge.
It's the first ever Yorkshire marathon, and is being staged by a new organisation under the Jane Tomlinson charitable events umbrella - which already includes the successful Leeds, York, Hull and Pennine-Lancashire 10Ks and the sell-out Leeds Half Marathon.
For her part, ITV Calendar presenter Christine Talbot is taking part in the marathon's relay race.
History is to be made once again in York as the city gets ready to host the first ever Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon.
Over 6,500 runners have signed up to take part in the hotly-anticipated event - the biggest and best race to hit the region in 2013 - which sold out within three days of its launch.
Thousands of runners are expected to take part in new sporting event for the region later this year.
The first ever Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon will take place in October and is being staged by Jane Tomlinson Run For All Events, which already runs the Leeds, York, Hull and Pennine-Lancashire 10Ks and the Leeds Half Marathon.
They were stablished by the Tomlinson family as a legacy to the late Yorkshire fundraiser and campaigner Jane Tomlinson CBE who raised almost £2m for charity by tackling a series of incredible endurance challenges, despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer.
