Up to 5,000 runners are expected to compete in the sixth edition of the Asda Foundation Hull 10K on Sunday 14 June. Since being launched five years ago, the race, part of the Jane Tomlinson Run For All 10K series, has established itself as one of key events in the Humberside sporting calendar.
Starting and finishing in Hull city centre, the route takes competitors along the Humber, past some of the city's best-loved landmarks including the Marina and The Deep, and through Hull's historic heart.
Last year’s event saw Steve Bateson secure victory in a time of 33:20, followed by Alec Gibson in 34:15, while Mark Kendall came third in 34:30. Emma Yates was the first woman in 38:02 finishing ahead of Catherine Jeremiah in second who clocked 39:15. Niki Whitaker took third place in 41:26.
Looking ahead to the race, event lead Charlie Tatman said the team have been working in partnership with Hull City Council to minimise disruption on race day: “We always get great support from runners and spectators alike for the Hull 10K and we are very much looking forward to this year’s run. Some road closures are required to ensure a safe race for all involved. We work really hard to minimise any disruption but, with an event on such a large scale, a small amount is inevitable. We’d like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. Thank you to everyone for their continued support of this year’s Hull 10K.”
