Welcome to Abbey Runners

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. We also have a thriving Juniors Section which meets on a Monday at 6:00pm. We stage several races each year including the Eccup 10, the Golden Acre Relay, Anniversary Fell Race and Rombalds Romp &  Abbey Dash

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.


This Thursday – Hilly circuits session on the fields at Bodington.

You should consider the possibility of things getting a little bit muddy and select your footwear accordingly!

Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for weekend meets.
