Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge

The Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge is a hilarious go-cart race down York's Finest Street.

On Sunday 28th August 2016 (the August Bank Holiday) fifty teams from all over Britain will be racing their home made soapbox carts down the steep cobbles street of Micklegate, from the Bar to the River Ouse.

Throughout the day there’ll be street food, bands and entertainment for the little ones, so join the crowds and come and support this fantastic event.

The Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge is organised by the Micklegate Business Initiative, an group of local businesses working together to improve the Micklegate area.
