Runners sought for Leeds Abbey Dash 10k

Runners are being urged to sign up for this year’s Leeds Abbey Dash 10k run.

The much-loved event returns on Sunday, October 13 and Age UK is calling on runners to register now to secure their spot in this popular charity event, which raises essential funds and awareness to support older people.

With its flat and fast course between the city centre and Kirkstall Abbey, the Leeds Abbey Dash is perfect for runners of all abilities. Whether it’s your first 10k or striving for a personal best, this run offers an opportunity for those taking part to challenge themselves while contributing to a worthy cause. Funds raised will support Age UK’s national Advice Line and Telephone Friendship Service, as well as local support and friendship services across Yorkshire.

Kath Blaize-Smith, Senior Community & Mass Participation Fundraising Manager at Age UK, said: “We’re thrilled to be back in Leeds for this year’s Leeds Abbey Dash. Whether you’re challenging yourself or forming a team, this popular and sociable 10k run is a wonderful way to support Age UK’s mission. By participating, you can help us continue our vital work for older people in need. Please sign up today!

“In today’s challenging times, many older people are grappling with the cost-of-living crisis, loneliness, and isolation, often without knowing where to turn for help. Age UK’s services provide crucial support and companionship, making a significant difference in the lives of those who feel alone and unsupported.”
