Last Sunday, 18th November, one third of the Search Laboratory team gave up their morning to run the 10k Abbey Dash (in aid of Age UK) and our Charity of the Year – Candlelighters. A record 9,000 runners took part, running the 10k from Leeds City Centre to Kirkstall Abbey and back again in aid of charity.

The Search Laboratory team turnout this year exceeded all the previous years and run, hobble or walk the 10k the team did a sterling job helping to raise (at the time of writing) over £1,675!

The team came 33rd overall in the mixed corporate challenge category, 19th in the mens category and 24th in the womens category.

Despite the fact there was a bit of race chip juggling (and some who had to go without), the team’s times are listed below – everyone deserves to be really proud:
