Race news: Asda Foundation York 10K - Sunday, August 3, 2014

The countdown is underway to the start of one of the country’s most attractive city 10Ks that will bring thousands of runners and spectators on to the streets of York.

Over 6,000 people are expected to take part in the Asda Foundation York 10K on August 3rd raising tens of thousands of pounds for charity.

Organisers  Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All 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, a small number of road closures will be in place from noon on Saturday August. Knavesmire Road will be closed between its junction with Tadcaster Road and Knavesmire Crescent from noon on Saturday until 4pm on Sunday. Parking restrictions will also be in operation on Knavesmire Road, Racecourse Road, Bishopthorpe Road, Vine Street, Butcher Terrace and Priory Street between 4pm on Saturday until 4pm on Sunday.

Elsewhere, from 5pm on Friday August 1st until 4pm on Sunday August 3rd there will be parking suspensions on Knavesmire Road from Tadcaster Road to Knavesmire Crescent.
On Sunday, most roads around the 10K route will be closed from 8:30am until noon including Bishopthorpe Road, Coney Street, Skeldergate from Terry Avenue to Bishopgate Street and Minsters Yard from Duncombe Place to Deangate.

Knavesmire Road from Tadcaster Road to Campleshon Road will be closed from 4am until 2pm and the whole of Racecourse Road will be closed from 6am until 2pm.

Event lead Keith Taylor said: “The York 10K is enormously popular and we are grateful to all those who give us their support. With such a big event some disruption is inevitable but we aim to keep road closures and restrictions to an absolute minimum. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank people for their patience.”

Participants can raise money for any charity of their choice, but are particularly encouraged to support the event's official partner charities which this year are: the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, Brain Tumor Research and Support, Clic Sargent, Macmillan, Martin House Children’s Hospice, St Leonard’s Hospice, Sue Ryder, Yorkshire Cancer Research, Candlelighters and York Teaching Hospital Charity.
