We are celebrating our 25th anniversary this year.
We are a friendly, growing running club based at Adel War Memorial Association on Church Lane, just off Otley Road in North Leeds.
We cater for runners of all standards, and half of our members are women.
We participate in road, cross-country, fell and trail races, as well as off road relay events. We organise races including the Abbey Dash and the Eccup 10 mile. Why not come and join us? We can help you to get more out of your running.
We now have a new junior section.
We also have a thriving social section

There are long runs on a Sunday as part of marathon training. These are subject to members competing in races.
Can I turn up or do I have to join first?
You can turn up on a club night and join in.
There is no pressure to join until you are sure it is for you.
Come and have a run and a drink in the bar afterwards.
I am only looking to train for the Virgin London Marathon, how will I find others to train with?
We have a number of members doing the London Marathon this year. Some of them running it for the first time. We also participate in other UK marathons and other further a field. We cater for runners of all standards and different commitments. No one is pressurised into doing more than they want to.
