The Leeds Abbey Dash 10k run returns in 2021, taking place on Sunday 24 October. 

Last year’s race was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic but registration is now open for this year’s event.

Runners aged over 15 can take part in the popular event, which sees a route from Leeds city centre, up to Kirkstall Abbey, and back.

Funds raised from the Abbey Dash will go towards Age UK’s services, including information and advice, telephone friendship, befriending and social activities.

Lydia Curran, Head of Events at Age UK, said:

“We’re thrilled that registration is now open for our 35th Leeds Abbey Dash.

“It’s such a fantastic day and the perfect event for all runners regardless of their experience, so please sign up today and help make a huge difference to the lives of older people.

“Older people have been among the worst affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the money raised from the event will mean Age UK can continue to support older people during this challenging time.”

Registration fee: £24, or £22 for UK Athletics members (excluding processing fee). More details and sign up for the event here.
