Thousands of runners turned the streets into a riot of colour on Sunday (August 2) as the seventh York 10K proved a great success.

One of Yorkshire’s biggest charity road races, the Asda Foundation York 10K forms part of the legacy of inspirational fundraiser Jane Tomlinson.


The large field made its way around the route, which started and finished in Knavesmire Road close to York Racecourse and took in some of the city’s magnificent landmarks including the minster and Clifford’s Tower.



THe Lord Mayor of York Cllr Sonja Crisp, started the race with TV’s Harry Gration. Cllr Crisp said:

What a wonderful sight to see so many members of the local community taking to the streets of our beautiful city, raising money for their chosen charities.



Huge crowds created a vibrant atmosphere as they cheered the participants every step of the way.

Asda Foundation manager Julie Ward said:

Well done to everyone, including the many Asda colleagues, who supported today’s Asda Foundation York 10K and made it such a success. As ever, the beautiful city of York played its part in providing such a perfect venue.



Some of the biggest cheers of the day were reserved for the hundreds of big-hearted youngsters aged between three and 14 taking part in the free-to-enter Arena Group York Mini and Junior runs.

They ran to support a good cause choice of their own choice or on behalf of this year’s official partner charity, The Family Fund, a national charity based in York.

For 40 years has been giving grants to low-income families raising a disabled or seriously ill child aged 17 and under.

The winning boy in the junior run was Monty Pegrum, while the first-placed girl was Megan Wyke Ulliott.



First across the line was Steve Robinson in a time of 32mins 57secs. Jordan Skelly took second place in 33mins 05secs, with John Clifford third in 33mins 23secs.



The first woman home was Michelle Nolan in 36mins 45secs. Second place went to Leila Armoush who finished in 37mins 15secs ahead of Emma Yates who was third in 37mins 52secs.




The 10K’s partner charities are the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, Brain Tumour Research and Support, Macmillan Cancer Support, CLIC Sargent, Martin House Children’s Hospice, St Leonard’s Hospice, York Teaching Hospital Charity, Candlelighters, Yorkshire Cancer Research and Action For Children.
