Leeds Abbey Dash 10K
Paul Holley is on his way back from injury and ventured to Leeds to rub shoulders with a world class 10K field in the Leeds Abbey Dash. When there are 400 runners ahead of the elite veteran Jogger you know the race is a prestigious field. Paul finished in a respectable 36.19 and will no doubt soon be back in top shape.
A superb pb for Belinda Schofield in 49.55 and she supported by Clive Purbrook in 44.51.
