Nearly 3,000 runners pounded the pavements of Leeds at the weekend to compete in the fastest ever Leeds Abbey Dash – 10k for Age UK.

The annual event, which returned on a smaller scale after being cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, helps to raise vital funds for the charity to support older people most in need.

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

“It was absolutely fantastic to be back for The Leeds Abbey Dash – 10k for Age UK this year. The atmosphere was brilliant and we’re so proud and thankful to all the runners who took part and helped to make it such a success. We’d also like to say a big thank you to the volunteers for their support and for helping the event to run as safely as possible.

“The Leeds Abbey Dash raises vital funds for older people, helping those that need it the most during what is often a very challenging time of year, and we’re very grateful for the support.”

WLD photographer Simon Cullingworth was on hand to capture the runners in Kirkstall:
