*Virtual* York 10k 2020

Event cancelled? You can still run your own race for York Mind.

We're sorry to say that due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the York 10k race organisers have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 race (it will now happen on 1st August 2021).

This is understandably devastating news for all the runners, volunteers, and charities taking part.

The York 10k is the single biggest income-generating event we rely on to raise funds during the year - so we're really hoping that you'd still like to take part (virtually) and help raise vital funds for mental health support in York.

Keeping safe

The most important thing is everyone’s health, safety and wellbeing. With that in mind, we’d strongly recommend that you observe the current social distancing guidelines as outlined by Government.

Only embark on a run if you’re fit and safe to do so. We can't provide marshals or Health & Safety Officers at your virtual run - so if you're in any doubt about your health or fitness before you set off, please stay home - you can reschedule if you need to.
