Back on board for 2014

We're incredibly proud to be back on board as the headline sponsor of the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon 2014. This year, we're committed to making the marathon even bigger and better, with lots more interaction for the runners and the crowds of supporters across the course.

It's rare that a debut event can be declared such a roaring success, yet in 2013 the Yorkshire Marathon not only managed this, it also established itself as a "must do" event for seasoned runners, both in the UK and across the globe.

It's been our good fortune to be involved in this partnership from the start and that's why we're enormously pleased to announce The Jane Tomlinson Appeal as our charity of the year.

Plusnet staff will join the masses on 12th October, to pound the streets of York and raise funds for the Appeal and the variety of children's and cancer charities it supports.

For those of you that are intending to take on this challenge and run the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon, I wish you the best of luck - go on, do yourself proud!

Members of our running team

Oli Andrews

Oli Andrews

Oli works in the Business Marketing Team and will be taking on the challenge for the first time.

This has to be the toughest challenge I've set myself. Having not done any type of long distance running beforehand, I've definitely jumped straight into the deep end! Even so, I'm really looking forward to running with my colleagues and to helping raise funds for The Jane Tomlinson Appeal.
Mark Hopewell

Mark Hopewell

Mark is a Technical Advisor at Plusnet, he will be running the marathon for the second time.

My goal was to run a marathon before I turned 30 and I did this last year. Now having completed one, I have been bitten by the bug so have signed up to do this again.
