Event lead Lucy Elsender said: “The Asda Foundation York 10K is a fantastic event that always generates such a great atmosphere and we are very grateful to everyone who offers it such great support.
With such a big event some disruption is unavoidable but we work very hard to keep it to a minimum and endeavour to get roads open as soon as it is safe to do so. We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience and thank people for their patience.”
