Brand new to running or a seasoned pro, all are welcome.

From complete beginner to super speedy you’ll find a warm welcome at all of our running sessions.

Whatever the weather, we meet at 7pm Tuesday and Thursday at The Edge, University of Leeds.


Tuesday Run Club

Tuesday is run night, with a variety of routes that include hills, flat runs and speedwork.

We have up to eight levels, from Group One (beginners, returners and runners who take more than 35 minutes to run 5k) to Group Eight (people who can break 40 mins for 10k).

No-one is too slow – you’ll never be left behind and you’ll never be made to feel a nuisance.
