What's the Dash Challenge?

The Dash Challenge is part of the fast, fun, 10k Leeds Abbey Dash. It's a chance to win top prizes by racing in a team.

All teams with 3 or more members are automatically entered into the competition for:

  • fastest mixed team
  • fastest male team
  • fastest female team
  • top Age UK fundraising team
  • biggest team
  • best fancy dress

So grab your friends, take on a rival team at work, or plan a family outing. Dash through our 10k course with them and help us be there for older people when they need us most.

Get involved!

To join the challenge, your team must be 3 people or more.

Step 1

Captains, set up your champion team.

Set up your fundraising page

JustGiving makes it easy for your friends and family to support your fundraising.

I was feeling lonely. It was winter; winter days and winter nights. Getting in touch with Age UK Leeds changed everything.
