Hull city centre prepares to host the Hull Running Festival

Hull Festival of Running road closures run down for Sunday 10th June.

Thousands of runners are getting ready for a festival of running in Hull on Sunday 10th June.

Along with the popular Asda Foundation Hull 10K – now in its ninth year, the day will include the first Asda Foundation Hull Half Marathon, a major new addition to the region’s running calendar.

And both events, which are expected to raise tens of thousands of pounds for local good causes, will include an  MKM Corporate Challenge in which companies will compete to life the title of fastest firm in the race.

Organisers, Run For All, are now informing runners, spectators, residents and visitors that a number of the city’s roads will be closed, or have access restricted, during the event to ensure the safety of all those taking part.

Among the roads affected are Alfred Gelder Street, Bowl Alley Lane, Hanover Square, Lowgate, Manor Street, Quay Street, Queens Dock Avenue, Vernon Street and Wilberforce Drive.

Full details of all road closures and traffic restrictions are available at

Tristan Batley-Kyle, Run For All head of events, said: “The Hull Festival of Running is shaping up to a great day and is sure to enhance the city’s great sporting reputation.

“Of course we want the event to be as enjoyable and as safe as possible for everyone involved and that inevitably means some road closures are necessary.

“We will try to minimise any disruption and would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. All closures will be lifted as soon as possible.”
