Leeds Abbey Dash 5th Nov 2017

One of the UK’s well known, popular 10k’s, the Leeds Abbey Dash was back for its 32nd year of running and the organisers were hoping for it to be the best yet. The 10k route is perfect for beginners and experienced runners alike, due to it’s flat, PB busting course. 

The race, which incorporated the 2017 England Athletics 10km Championships, continued its reputation as one of the best-quality 10km events in Britain as the first 15 men broke 30 minutes on chip time. A total of 31 athletes finished inside 31 minutes, while the top eight women were all inside 34 minutes

The course starting on Wellington Street, heads out of the city along Kirkstall Rd to the Abbey, where runners turn and head back past the TV studio’s, over the flyover and onto the Headrow to finish in front of the town hall steps  cheered on by hundreds of spectators lining the finish area. 

Well done all QRCers who took part and I hope you enjoyed your racing.
