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 trail runs for club members on a Tuesday evening at 6.50pm. The trail runs meet in various locations around North Leeds and we have both a short and long route option which are suitable for various paces. All club sessions are booked on to via Spond the clubs booking app which you will receive access to when you join the club.
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 are currently an interval session (typically speedwork or hillwork involving repetitions) – we currently offer the choice of 3 sessions on a Thursday which are carefully planned to ensure suitability for all levels.
4) Do you cater for absolute beginners?
We have previously ran 8 week beginner courses which are an excellent and enjoyable way of making the step-up to our main club sessions.
Currently due to Covid restrictions the beginners courses are on pause but we will look to run these again in the future. If you have any enquiries about our beginners courses please email firstname.lastname@example.org
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?
Previously potential new members have been more than welcome to try out a session for free before deciding whether to join. However, due to Covid restrictions we are currently unable to offer trial sessions. Hopefully this will change in the near future but until then you are more than welcome to join as a member which costs only £25 for the year.
7) How much does it cost to join Roundhay Runners?
Membership is currently only £25 a year and we are accepting new members to the club. Please see the membership page for more details, click here.
