City of Hull has organised a road race named after North Ferriby every year since 1954. The event originated as a staggered start handicap along one of the favourite training routes. The race was to be an open handicap, but only East Hull Harriers and Driffield Harriers were invited to participate. Thirty-three runner completed the first race, with first man home being Ray Gray of East Hull Harriers whilst the fastest time (56.38) was recorded by Reg Darley of Hull Harriers off scratch.
In 1957, the Ferriby 10 became an open race and was won by Joe Lancaster of Manchester A.C., the world 20 mile champion, who crossed the line in 53.40. In 1960, Stan Sykes of Longwood Harriers lowered the fastest time for the Ferriby ’10’ to 51.02, whilst in 1980, Brendan Foster was granted a late entry and went on to run 48.01, the fastest time recorded in the history of the event..

In the 1990s the construction of a new stretch of the busy A1079 road to the Humber Bridge cut across the route and the race moved to a new course from Skidby. The race is now one of the most popular races in the area, a record of 753 finishers in 2015.

Carl Ryde (Doncaster AC) & Carla Stansfield (City of Hull AC) won in 2017 with times of 53.48 & 60.53, whilst Darran Bilton (52.10) & Jenny Blizzard (58.13) presently hold the record for the fastest times recorded on the present course.
