...a little brother to the Vale of York Half Marathon
Ten miles not 13.1, but just like its big sibling, the race takes off from a runway (a different one) to glide around some fast, flat, traffic-free closed roads, west of York, east of Leeds.

York Gliding Centre, Rufforth, York YO23 3NA
£19 affiliated - £22 unaffiliated
No entry on the day. Entrants must be aged 17 years or over on the day of the race.

What do I get for running?
Apart from the warm-glow of satisfaction from a race well run? a medal and technical t-shirt for all finishers and whatever goodies we can lay our hands on!
Is it chip-timed?
Our charity partner for the Vale of York 10 is Epilepsy Action (registered charity no. 234343), the UK’s leading epilepsy organisation which exists to improve the lives of everyone affected by the condition. Epilepsy can affect anyone at any age and from any walk of life, and globally over 50 million people have the condition.
Even Splits Ltd will be donating 30% of the event net profits to Epilepsy Action.
Thank you to St Theresa's AC (STAC to their friends) for providing the course marshals on the day.
And we couldn't stage the race without the help and support of the York Gliding Centre, a friendly gliding club located at Rufforth airfield. The club caters for experienced pilots just visiting, those wishing to take up the sport, or anyone wanting to try gliding for the first time.
