Micklegate Run - Monday 26 August


It's fast, it's furious, and it's back for another year!

The Micklegate Run soapbox race takes place in the centre of York over the August Bank Holiday weekend, and it's sure to be another cracking spectacle.

We've given our own soapbox racer a year off this year (look out for it returning in the future!), but there are still plenty of incredible soapboxes to see as they fly down the cobbles in spectacular style.

Take the family into the city - it's just £30 for a group of up to five people with Daytripper Plus Group.

Whilst they're setting up for the race on Sunday 25th (after 6pm), and whilst the race is taking place, some of our buses won't be able to use their normal stops around the city.

On Monday 26 August, Cityzap will start and finish at the rail station, and won't be running to Clifford Street. Coastliner will also need to take a different route through the city centre, and won't be able to stop at Micklegate, Rougier Street, Low Ousegate, Bridge Street, the Stonebow or Peasholm Green.
