The Plusnet Yorkshire 10 Mile is back for 2016 – and it’s set to be even better!
With over 2,000 entries selling out in super-quick time in 2015, you’ll need to be fast if you want to be sure of a place on Sunday 9th October this year.
The 10 Mile takes place as part of the Yorkshire Marathon festival – alongside the sold out Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon – and boasts a largely flat and fast course, with an unrivalled atmosphere.
Starting and finishing at the University of York, the route heads into the city centre and out into the Yorkshire countryside before returning for an electric finish at the university.
The 2016 event will take place on Sunday 9th October at approx 10.15am.
