The Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge

Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge

Thanks for visiting our site. Now that the world is finally getting back to normal, we are focusing on the 2023 event, to take place on August Bank Holiday.

To enable this event to go ahead, we need a partner to work with us and sponsors to allow it to go ahead. The Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge is an incredible inclusive event, which takes place on one day, but receives all year round coverage.
