The Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge 2019

Monday 26th August 2019





The Countdown is on to York’s Wackiest Race…

Join us from 10am when the race begins, with up to 40 teams competing to be crowned The York Bid, Micklegate Soapbox Champions 2019. Teams will be representing & raising money for their chosen charities by hurtling down the 6-meter ramp based near to the Micklegate Bar & rattling their way down the ancient cobbles towards Ouse Bridge.

Minster FM will be broadcasting live on the day, with live music from local band Sisters & Brothers. A fantastic Food Court & outdoor eating area from Micklegate businesses is reason enough alone to come on down…. But if you need more there will be a Fun Fair, Children’s Rides & Super Car Display.

We look forward to seeing you all on the day for the funniest day of the year!
