Starting outside the Town Hall and passing through Kirkstall Abbey, participants will be able to enjoy a picturesque, flat course – ideal for both those who are attempting their very first 10k run, and elite and seasoned runners aiming to beat a personal best time.

Staff at Yorkshire's friendly low fare airline Jet2.com, have pledged to raise some much needed funds in aid of Age-Concern and Help the Aged by signing up for this year’s Leeds Abbey Dash, taking place this Sunday 21 November 2010.

Sponsors of the popular 10km road race, Jet2.com has recruited a number of employees from cabin crew and check-in staff to the managing director of the airline, Ian Doubtfire, to swap their wings for trainers this weekend when they take part in the region’s 26th Abbey Dash.
