Michael Nicholson, 65, of Beverley, took part for the fourth consecutive year.
He said: "This is my Sunday morning training session and it's nice to do it with company.
"It's a brilliant event."
Ellie Birch, 43, of Sproatley, walked with friends and family in memory of her father, Paul Redhead, who died from heart disease in 2008, aged 69.
She said: "We do the walk as a family and it's grown a bit with friends."
Last year's walk raised £4,800 for the Mending Broken Hearts Appeal.
Raymond Dove, leader of the mending Broken Hearts group in Hull, said: "It's about exercise and we want people to get out in the fresh air."
