10th Year Of The Yorkshire Coast McCain 10k Race

The McCain Yorkshire Coast 10k

Published by Karen Liu at 7:00am 21st October 2018.

It is the 10th Yorkshire Coast McCain 10k run today.

More than 2,500 people are set to take part in the race at 10am.

Participants will make their way around the Marine Drive, to the Sea Life Centre, returning via the North Bay promenade.

The event sold out in just under three hours - when it took 15 hours last year.

The main road race is followed by 2.5k and 1.6k family fun runs, both of which are perfect for children and anyone wanting to run the shore on a smaller scale. Entry to either Fun Run is only £1.

Race Directors, Mike and Melanie Padgham, said:

"This event looks set to be even more special than ever - the 10th anniversary and the increase in numbers have added extra excitement to the run.

We're really grateful to all our sponsors, in particular McCain, for once again backing the 10k - we couldn't do it without them.

All that remains is to keep our fingers crossed for decent weather and urge as many people as possible to come down and cheer the runners on."

Jennifer Domett from McCain said:

"We've supported the McCain Yorkshire Coast 10k for the past 10 years - and it's been fantastic to watch it grow.

My favourite thing about the event is how inclusive it is - there really are no barriers.

We have toddlers running the Family Fun Runs and people in their 80s completing the 10k.

There are seasoned runners trying to achieve a personal best, work teams running for charity and groups of friends who've set this as their first running challenge.

It's everything a community event should be."
