The Facewest team of Tim, Jon & Stu are the Abbey Dash 2009 Corporate Challenge Champions.
The ‘Help the Aged Abbey Dash’ is the highest profile 10K road race in Leeds with 8000 entries. We enetered a male team in the corporate challenge. The corporate challenge takes the best 3 runners from a local business and combines their finish positions for a corporate score. The lowest score wins.
The day was a bit windy but at least it was dry and actually quite warm for November. There had been a lack of speed work in the facewest team but with our star runner Tim running sub 33 last year and Jon & I quite experienced 10 K runners we were hopeful of a good placing.
As it turned out Tim ran a great 33.03 and Jon set a pb of 36.46, both these helped offset my slightly disappointing 38.16 but our finish positions of 44th, 137th and 209th gave us the title by 25 places over last years winners KPMG.
