This is your Leeds Abbey Dash
Sign up now to be part of Yorkshire’s favourite 10k road race.
The Age UK Leeds Abbey Dash is one of the fastest 10k road races around. Combine that with a friendly atmosphere and unbeatable team spirit and it's the perfect place to achieve your goals – whether that's setting a new PB or crossing the finishing line at your first 10k. What's more, every step you take will help Age UK be there for older people who have no one else.
This was one of the best large 10K events I’ve had the pleasure of doing. Such a lovely atmosphere throughout the race.

By participating in the Age UK’s Leeds Abbey Dash 2019, you're helping to improve the lives of people like Barbara.
Anxiety and panic attacks led to Barbara becoming isolated, and severely affected her health and wellbeing.
“I struggled with talking to people, answering the door, going out – everything,” she says.
Her doctor suggested she contact Age UK Leeds about their befriending services. They arranged regular home visits from Phoebe, one of their befriending volunteers.
“Phoebe’s visits make me feel better," says Barbara. "I didn’t realise how much I missed talking to people. We look through old photos together and go for walks. I didn’t think I’d ever enjoy things again, but I have.”
“I’m so grateful for what Age UK Leeds have done.”
By asking your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor your Leeds Abbey Dash race, you can help raise even more vital funds to help us be there for more older people in desperate need of our support.
Setting up a JustGiving page to collect sponsorship couldn't be easier, and we'll support your fundraising every step of the way.
I fundraise for Age UK because I want to give something back. Age UK are a fantastic charity. I think a lot of people aren’t aware of how much support they offer older people. I just think without them, a lot of older people’s lives would be much lonelier, with no one to talk to or share their worries with.
Dash as a team to fundraise together and win prizes.
