Does anyone know if the Abbey Dash has kilometre markers?

Hi Andrew, yes, there are km markers.

I'm considering running this after all the previous positive comments.  Am I correct in thinking this race starts and finishes in Leeds city centre?  If so and with not being familiar with the area, what car parking options are available?

Hi AndyH 1, yes Leeds City Centre, starts and finish outside the town hall.

Most of the council or open-air car parks are free as it's a sunday.

Hmmm.  Isn't that sort of thing frowned on Andrew?

I haven't done this race for a few years now, the exorbitant cost has put me off - good to hear that a technical T shirt is on offer now, I have a pile of old Abbey Dash T shirts at home that will never be worn.  Still a lot of dosh for a 10K though - if there was a grand panorama of gorgeous scenery I could half understand it ..... I suppose it IS a PB course though and that's what will drag a lot of runners to the start line.

Anyone received the chip/number yet?

12/11/2012 at 14:45

Got mine on Friday.

Mine arrived Saturday but I have done nothing but injure myself since it arrived. Managed to pull/strain/tear both glutes in separate incidents and drop a fence post on my foot today. Not sure I will be able to run till Sundays race.

Some important advice for P.B seekers - with 8000 runners at this race, we are all supposed to stand in 'sub 35' or 'sub 40' etc sections at the start, but nobody ever takes notice of this rule unfortunately, so once the start gun goes, you can sometimes end up with 300 'sub 60' runners in front of you and therefore the p.b goes out of the window, as the first kilometre in this race (down to the roundabout) is incredibly crowded and time can be lost. So if you want a p.b, get down the front!

Isn't it this sort of mindset which causes the crowding in the first place?

As a Saints fan living in Yorkshire, I'll give you an answer Elli - it's a shithole ;0)

Leeds tries to make out its cool and trendy but its a s###hole, I mean, let's be right....... It's not Sheffield.
