Food Court & Outside Eating Area. Children's rides. Plus much more.... Come along and join us ... Free Fun For All The Family.

Why it's a great idea:
Steps to get it done:
The inspiration behind the event originally was to turn peoples views about the Micklegate Run Pub Crawl from a negative into a more positive perception of Micklegate. We needed to let people know about the wonderful restaurants, cafes & shops on this York's finest Street. This is a continuous reminder to everyone and is becoming successful with events like the Autohorn Micklegate Run Soap Box Challenge. It has turned into an event which is fun for both residents and visitors alike, bringing in revenue not only to Micklegate but the whole of York. www.micklegaterun.co.uk
