Still Time For York 10K

York 10k

Organisers of the Jane Tomlinson York 10K have announced that a limited number of entries for Sunday's event are still available. The race, expected to draw in a field of up to 6,000 runners, is the fourth and final installment in the popular Run for All 10K series.

Starting and finishing on Knavesmire, the picturesque course takes runners past famous sights including York Minster, the city walls and attractions such as Clifford's Tower and the Shambles. Even with a picturesque backdrop, the course is said to be flat with a good PB potential.

Last year's event saw Birchfield Harriers' Ben Livesey take top position in an impressive time of 30:50, with Bret Crossley second (31:19) and Paul Lockwood third (32:38). Emma Yates of York Knavesmire Harriers led the women home in 37:55.

As an added bonus, rugbly league club York City Knights are offering free admission to Sunday's clash against Sheffield Eagles for anyone that completes the 10k. Runners just need to arrive at Huntington Stadium with their badge number to secure admission. Kick off is at 3pm.

For anyone interested in taking part, registration is open until 9am on Friday. Visit the event website for more details.
