People are once again being invited to take part in Marathon du Malton – Britain’s tastiest 10K, which takes place on Sunday 17 September.

Inspired by France’s famous Marathon du Medoc, a trail across the European wine region, this foodie celebration starts and finishes in Malton’s picturesque Market Place and takes people out into the North Yorkshire countryside, showcasing a range of offerings from producers in Yorkshire’s Food Capital.

There are three race options on offer:

- the Malton 10k – for the serious runners, no food and drink stops, just you vs the clock! starting at 10.45am
