Leeds Abbe Dash



  • ok, so pack arrived - with NO directions to the car parks or the start :<(
  • Car parks?


  • Beanz - it's Sunday, it's leeds city centre - there's tons of car parks (and on street parking) - if in doubt park in "The Light" shopping centre - you have to pay, but it's dead near the start.

  • Pack arrived - where do you put the chip so it doesn't wag around and annoy the hell out of me!
  • Can I put it in the little pocket on the inside of me Ron Hill shorts? I've never been tagged before!!!
  • Just tie it on with your laces and it should be fine. You have to run over a mat to register the chip so i suppose the nearer the ground the better. The mat might not talk to one in your pocket!
    They used a slightly different chip last year (held on by tape rather than laces) and you never noticed it was there.
  • What happens if it snows? Will the race go ahead as long as the roads are open?! What about ice?
  • Am banking on the gritters Chris!
  • Snow - a bit of snow doesn't stop a race! Does it??????
  • I hope its not too icy as I'm hoping for a PB on Sun (45-46mins). I suppose the amount of people running ahead of me will clear the ice.
  • just looked at two forecasts and neither predict snow - showers and sun - which has cheered me up no end :>))
  • Thats great news, really looking forward to this race, had a great run @ Roundhay Park last weekend, so fingers crossed.
  • Abbey Dash 2005 - Two places available

    One of the guys at work has a couple of friends that have had to drop out of the race on Sunday
    And he says…
