Thousands of runners will be pounding the pavements for The Leeds Abbey Dash – 10k for Age UK, and there are still a few days left to sign up and join in the fun.

Entries for the popular charity run will close at midnight on Friday, 14 October 2022, so runners are being urged to enter now to secure their place.

The run takes place one on Sunday, 23 October 2022.

Lydia Curran, Head of Events at Age UK, said: “We can’t wait to return to Leeds for the 36th Leeds Abbey Dash, it’s such a fun event and the atmosphere is always fantastic.

“The money raised will support older people in Yorkshire and across the UK who are most in need.

“It’s been a challenging time for older people with the rising cost of living, with those most vulnerable struggling to make ends meet, and Age UK’s services are a lifeline for those who have no one to turn to. So please do sign up if you can, you’ll be making a huge difference.”
