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 signing up to take part in the Leeds Abbey Dash, you’ll make sure Age UK can be there for older people who need us, with advice, support and a listening ear when times are tough.
Cyril is 90 and lives in Leeds. Thanks to people like you, Age UK Leeds was able to match him with a befriender, Philip, who drops in for regular conversation.
“I enjoy Philip’s visits so much, I want to clone him so that I could have 6 more - one for each day of the week, all happy to laugh at my jokes and not get bored.”
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.
