The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon Is Set to Return for an Even Bigger 2016: The Pendle Pig Comments


Padiham, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2016 -- Recent reports have drawn attention to the launch of the Plusnet Marathon entry on January 5th – which means that people can now put themselves and register for the race – which is set to take place on the 9th October 2016. The first Yorkshire marathon of this kind took place in 2013 and has been carried out annually since; every year selling out due to the scale of popularity. Therefore, the 2016 event, now the fourth year of the marathon, is anticipated to be bigger then ever. This emphasizes the active spirit and high level of public engagement in Yorkshire, as well as setting up many people to be excited for a big autumn occasion. A number of businesses in the area have been keen to comment on this, including The Yorkshire Pig.

An especially big 2016 is expected for the marathon as the 5th January opening for entry has already seen a considerable number of applicants, with many running for charitable causes. Thousands of runners are therefore expected at the start line, ready to take part on a route which is varied and interesting. Furthermore, the marathon is not only expected to bring participants to the towns of Yorkshire, but also tourism. It is clear, especially following the Tour De Yorkshire last year that the county is being seen as an increasingly desirable place for sport and tourism gatherings.

Keen to comment on the recent news was the Yorkshire Pig, a hog roast catering company working throughout the county. A spokesperson had this to say:

"The news of the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon and the anticipation that it is going to be so popular is great news. The county is known for its sporty vibe and big social events, and that is why we are proud and prepared to offer extensive catering options. We offer a full hog roast service; protein-packed and delicious food ideal for a variety of events."
