Micklegate Run soapbox york

This bank holiday Sunday, fifty teams from all over Britain raced their home made soapbox carts down the steep cobbled street of Micklegate, from the Bar to the River Ouse.

There was also some great food from the likes of Skosh and drinks from local breweries and bars.

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

Seemed to us to be a well run event and a fun day out.

Take a look at some of soapboxes from the day!
