Winter Training – Important Notice.

Thursday 16th October 2014

Starting this thursday we will be meeting at Roundhay Tennis Club.

Shaftesbury Ave, Lidgett Park, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS8 1DU

Don’t forget your High Viz gear and please be considerate of residents by parking on the tennis club side of the road.

See you there.

No Glo – No Go

As the nights are drawing in, the issue of high viz has been raised and discussed again.  After a lengthy debate, the committee have decided that from this Thursday 25th September (and throughout the dark winter months) the following policy will apply:

It is mandatory to wear brightly colored reflective high visibility clothing for all RR sessions.
This means that you will not be able to run with the group if you are not wearing appropriate kit.
A few people have asked what would be appropriate so please see the links below.  These bibs are widely available at running shops, really cheap and are both brightly colored and reflective. Some recent races have given out bright t-shirts but although these are high visibility in the daylight, these are not reflective, so in themselves would not be considered appropriate.
Example yellow reflective high vis bibs from Sweatshop (£3):


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.
