Weekly club training sessions are every Thursday evening starting from Roundhay in north Leeds. Sessions are designed to cater for all abilities so don't worry if you haven't run more than a short distance before.


With more than 100 members in Roundhay Runners, you are sure to meet people who match your ability and share your passion for running and keeping active.


From 5km to five days - and everything in between. Our members can regularly be seen racing around the Yorkshire roads, trails and fells. We'd love you to join us.


Sound like something you might be interested in? Well, what are you waiting for? Get in touch with any questions you might have or simply pop along to a training session on a Thursday.
