Hull’s rich maritime heritage, coupled with the quaint cobbled streets and marina make for a great event for spectators out on route. Bring the friends and family and make a day out of it, exploring all Hull has to offer.
Activities, entertainment and catering for all, as the race is in progress, will be available in the event village.
It’s difficult to pinpoint a standout section for spectators, such is the wealth of options on route. If you want a sea backdrop, the area along the waterfront, outside The Deep or around the marina are perfect or for a more vibrant atmosphere why not try Humber Street? The area on Queen's Gardens approaching the finish is very popular, as friends and family can cheer runners home before enjoying the event village. However, the route throughout is spectator friendly and we encourage noise and numbers on all sections.
The best place to meet up with family and friends before and after the race is in the event village on Queen's Gardens.
Ian challenged himself to complete the Asda Foundation Hull 10K in 2013 after he was diagnosed with cancer. Ian, 48, had to have one of his legs amputated after doctors discovered a tumour in his ankle. But he has defied his illness and come back fighting! Ian chose to raise funds for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal after being inspired by Jane’s story. Ian was given a carbon foot which has allowed him to do most things – running, however, has still been difficult. He set himself the target of finishing the race – and he achieved just that! Ian said: “I decided to raise money for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal because she was such an inspirational figure and I couldn’t think of a better cause.”
