1) What night and where do Roundhay Runners meet?
We train all year round and our main club sessions are every Thursday at 6.50pm to run for 7pm from North Leeds Cricket Club, Old Park Road, LS8 1JX.
2) Do you only run on Thursdays?
No – we also have club training sessions for club members on a Tuesday evening at 7pm. These alternate weekly between track sessions at Leeds Beckett’s Carnegie Campus and trail runs in various locations around North Leeds. We also have a facebook page, where members arrange ad hoc runs.
3) How far do you run in a session?
Our main Thursday sessions alternate each week between an interval session (typically speedwork or hillwork involving repetitions) – carefully planned to ensure suitability for all levels – and longer run weeks where there are groups for approx. 5-6km, 7-8km and 10km.
4) Do you cater for absolute beginners?
We run 8 week beginner courses twice a year which are an excellent and enjoyable way of making the step-up to our main club sessions. If you have any enquiries about our beginners courses please email firstname.lastname@example.org
To take part in the main club sessions we advise that you are able to run 5km (just over 3 miles), however as all of our groups have back markers, we cater for runners of all paces and ensure no one is left behind. Get in touch if you need to discuss any concerns.
5) Do you cater for a range of running paces?
Yes – we have a good spread of abilities represented in the club from leisurely runners to sub 3-hour marathoners.
6) Can I try out a session before committing to the club?
Yes – you are more than welcome to try out a session for free before deciding whether to join.
