Local man to attempt a half marathon to help save York’s music venues

On Sunday 26th July 2020, Zakk Taylor, who hosts The Crows Nest for Jorvik Radio, will be attempting a half marathon to raise money to help save York’s music venues.

The event will be live streamed on Facebook and recorded on Strava and he is urging fans to join him on his quest.

You can either run, walk or cycle. Each person who wants to take part can run their own routes.

If you’re interested in taking part, he’s asking for people to contact him.

Zakk said, “Let’s look back on these tough times with pride! Lets improve our mental and physical health over these next 3 months so we can party and rock out even harder afterwards!”
