You’ve arrived at the online home of Abbey Runners, the north Leeds club for runners of all abilities and all ages. Abbey Runners has something for every runner: our members take part in road running, cross-country, fell, trail and triathlon.
We meet twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 7:30pm) to run and train in ability-based groups for about an hour. For those new to running we have Beginners groups that meet on Tuesdays (6:45pm). We also have a thriving Juniors Section which meets on a Monday at 6:00pm. We also stage several races each year including the Abbey Dash and the Eccup 10, as well as the Golden Acre Relay, the Anniversary Fell Race and the Rombalds Romp.
So whether you want to get fit or fitter, train hard or train harder, or if you just want a social, friendly run with like-minded people, why not come and try Abbey Runners. For more information, use the Contacts page to get in touch with our Membership Secretary
