York’s Micklegate Soap Box Racing 2017

August Bank holiday Monday saw thousands of people take to the streets of Micklegate to watch the spectacular Soap Box event.

The streets were full of support by local media from the area to host and document the event and the many volunteers who dedicated their time to make this year so successful.

The safety of everyone at the Micklegate Run was also accounted for. Dave Wilson who is the training manager and operations crew of the York Rescue Boat and his team were on the river side to make sure everyone had a safe day.

And the quickest time wins the race. New to this year, the 51 teams had to go through the splash pit where they also get a helpful push along. Then onto the next ramp, heading towards the finish line. The winner of this year’s race was York Digital Image.
