Event information

info Latest News - COVID 19

Given the COVID-19 outbreak a number of the Run For All events in 2020 have been postponed till later in the year or have been moved to 2021. Given the York 10K isn’t due to take place until August, at present we are hopeful we will still be able to stage this event as planned. However, the team are monitoring the situation closely and will advise all entrants should the decision be made to postpone this event also.

It has been described as one of the country’s most beautiful city runs. Since its launch in 2009, the event has also grown into one of Yorkshire’s most popular 10Ks.

The York 10K offers runners the unique opportunity to race through the heart of this wonderful city.

The route starts and finishes in Knavesmire Road, close to York Racecourse. It then takes in some of the city’s most historic landmarks, including the ancient city walls, Clifford’s Tower and the minster.

The atmosphere will be electric from start to finish.

And for runners chasing that elusive PB, the flat and fast course is perfect.
