York 10K: Where and when to watch – and all the road closures
Sun Aug 7 @ 10am
Thousands of runners will hit the streets on Sunday (August 7) as the York 10K returns.
Raising huge sums of cash for good causes, the participants will also fill our ancient city with smiles (and the occasional grimace).
Organised by Run For All, the run forms part of the legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson who raised nearly £2m for charity by undertaking a series of gruelling challenges, despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer.
Here’s all you need to know about the day.
The starting flag for the Asda Foundation York 10K will come down at Knavesmire at 9.30am.
Here are the other timings for the day:
|8am||Race office opens|
|9.15am||Mass warm up on Knavesmire Road|
|11.45am||Mini and Junior runs start|
The race begins and ends on Knavesmire Road.
In the intervening 10km, runners will take a route through the city centre, past some of our most famous landmarks including the Minster, and along the river.
Here’s all the details.
|0-1km||A fast start taking runners along Knavesmire Road past the cheering crowds, before heading out along Campleshon Road and turning north up Bishopthorpe Road|
|1-2km||Head towards the city centre along Bishopthorpe Road and diving into the quaint residential streets to head towards the river|
|2-3km||After a short section along the river and under the city walls, the route takes runners back out through the city walls along Nunnery Lane|
|3-4km||Passing back through the city walls at Micklegate Bar towards the first drinks station, the route crosses the river on Bridge Street and turns towards the Minster on Spurriergate|
|4-5km||Runners are cheered through St Helen’s Square and on to Duncombe Place before running along Minster Yard in front of York Minster. A real focal point for spectators|
|5-6km||Along Parliament Street before heading past Clifford’s Tower. Runners will drop on to the waterfront at King’s Staith heading south|
|6-7km||A quieter and more peaceful riverside section of the route ahead, into the final push|
|7-8km||Continuing along the riverfront before crossing the river on Millennium Bridge to the second drinks station before re-joining Bishopthorpe Road|
|8-9km||Continue to the turn outside the front of the old Terry’s factory, before heading back along Campleshon Road|
|9-10km||Participants will then run past York Racecourse‘s stands, to the second turn in the road before entertainment and accompanying crowds will begin to build on this last stretch, encouraging runners along the finish straight on Knavesmire Road|
Saturday August 6
Knavesmire Road will be closed between its junction with Tadcaster Road and Campleshon Road from noon on Saturday, August 6 until approximately 3pm on Sunday, August 7.
