Stop Press - Challenge Events Update

Wed 22 April

We know how difficult it can be to concentrate on your training with all the uncertainty at the moment, so here's the latest news on all our challenge events, straight from the organisers.

London Marathon 
Originally scheduled for the 26th April, this iconic marathon – which would have been its 40th race – is now rescheduled to take place on Sunday 4th October 2020.

Every runner with a place in the 2020 London Marathon will be able to use their place in the rescheduled event without any further payment. The deadline to let the event organisers know if you cannot take part on the new date is Sunday 26
th April.

Total Warrior
This year's mud-run, which would have been their 10 year anniversary celebration, has sadly been put back until next year. The event will now take place on Saturday 26th June 2021.
Those with places for this year's event will be able to retain their spot for next year's.

Run For All - Leeds 10K
The race is still scheduled for Sunday 5th July 2020. The event organisers are hopeful this will still be able to go ahead as planned, however, they are monitoring the situation and will advise all entrants if a decision is made to postpone.

We still have places available for this year's Leeds 10K, so if you're missing out on another event or looking for a new training goal whilst in isolation, why not sign up
Great North Run
This half-marathon is still scheduled for Sunday 13th Septermber 2020. Organisers will assess over the coming weeks as the situation develops and update participants as a priority if anything changes.

Yorkshire Day Skydive
Our annual skydive at Bridlington Airport is still set to take place on Saturday 1st August 2020. We still have places available so why not sign up and set yourself a new challenge?

Keeping Motivated
We know it must be disappointing to have your event cancelled or postponed, but we want to do our best to help you stay motivated, which is why we've set up the new YBTC Active Group, a Facebook group for everyone taking part in challenge events. There we'll be sharing workout ideas, training tips and even healthy recipes to help keep you inspired and on track to achieve your goals.
Everyone taking part in a challenge event on behalf of YBTC should by now have heard from one of us, but if you have any questions then please do get in touch with either Nicki ( or Rosy (
