With a number of local races taking place on Sunday 6th November, the regular ‘first Saturday of the month’ club parkrun visit has been brought forward to this coming Saturday – 29/10/16.

We will be visiting the Fountains Abbey event which is widley regarded as one of, if not, the best parkruns in the UK due to the magnificant surroundings of the National Trust estate.

After the run, we will be heading to the cafe for a hot drink and a cheeky piece of cake or perhaps a bacon sandwich!

To Register all I need is your Date of Birth, Individual England Athletics number and £3 to buy your Chipped race number.

Leeds Abbey Dash – Club Championship Event – 06/11/16

Unfortuately this race clashes with the Guy Fawkes 10, but if currently you’re not up to 10 miles or just like shorter events, etc. then this is an excellent event.

It starts at 09.30 at Wellington Street, Leeds LS1 4LT and goes out to Kirkstall Abbey and back.

A fast flat course for PB seekers. Entry is at and the cost is £22 for affiliated runners.

Thanks, Eric
