  • Leeds Country Way (link currently still to 2015) – Sunday 4th September.  The Leeds Country Way Relay Race is a 64 mile circular relay race which uses the series of footpaths, bridle paths and roads around the actual Leeds Country Way route.

We’d like to get as many Abbeys out to these races and put as many teams in as possible. If you’re interested, don’t delay and let your captains know

If you are interested, please let the Captains know – Duncan Clark or Jasmine Salih

Duncan and Jasmine can give you further information on these races or speak to your club mates next time you’re training with them.
