Plan your York 10K weekend's travels with ease.

York’s historic streets will be alive with colour on Sunday 5th August when thousands of runners turn out for the Asda Foundation York 10K.

Run For All, organisers of the popular road race, are now advising runners, spectators, residents and visitors that a number of the city's roads will be closed or have access restricted during the event.

As part of the setting up operations, Knavesmire Road will be closed between its junctions with Tadcaster Road and Campleshon Road from 4.00am until 3.00pm on Sunday 5th August.

The entirety of Racecourse Road will also be closed from 6am until 12.30pm on Sunday.

The majority of roads around the 10K route will be closed from 8.30am until 11.45am including Bishopthorpe Road, Coney Street, Newton Terrace, Skeldergate from Terry Avenue to Bishopgate Street and Minster Yard from Duncombe Place to Deangate.

Parking restrictions will also be in operation from 4.00pm on Saturday 4th August to 3.00pm Sunday 5th August. These will take place on Knavesmire Road, Racecourse Road, Bishopthorpe Road, Vine Street, Butcher Terrace, Newton Terrace and Priory Street.

Tristan Batley Kyle, Head of Events at Run For All, said: “The York 10K is a very popular event and one which supports the work of some excellent good causes.

“Of course, with such a big event, some disruption is, unfortunately, unavoidable. We will be working hard to get the roads re-opened as quickly as possible and we would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
