Chapel Allerton Runners have been affiliated to the English Athletics Association since 1992. We enter a range of road, cross-country and fell races as individuals and as teams and have our own annual club championship.  Most of all, we run because we enjoy it!  People join the club for many reasons - it doesn’t matter whether you’re a novice, preparing for your first longer distance race, or aiming to lead the pack.  But the key reason to join is for the support, experience, competition, and friendship of our members. It's also an easy way to meet new people – running and socialising together once or twice a week is a very quick way to build strong friendships! Running in a group is also a great way to keep you sticking to your goals especially through the cold wet winter months.

Contact us at to find out more or head to one of our club nights at The Gledhow Sports & Social Club.


We have different route options each week so you can choose to run 4, 5 or 8 miles in groups of different speeds.  In Winter we run on lit streets on a variety of routes. In Summer we use trails through the green-spaces of north Leeds, and some weeks we start in locations such as Harewood House or Golden Acre Park.  We also have speed or hill training sessions on Monday evenings at 6.30pm from Gledhow, or on a nearby running track.  This is for all abilities and is great for rapidly improving fitness in a supportive group.


There’re always people staying on after the run at the Clubhouse each Wednesday and we hold a range of other socials and events. Many weekends there will be smaller groups of people doing races and sharing transport and support, including at the Saturday morning Parkruns across Leeds and beyond.  We cheer on our fellow runners at the big local events, plus the London marathon (including those who win their entry places each year through our prize draw).  We also organise a club trip abroad each year, an annual BBQ, an awards presentation after the Abbey Dash 10k race (Nov), and a Christmas dinner after our fancy dress Santa Run!

Congratulations to Lindsay Lowson on being our Member of the Moment!

Lindsay has been a member of the club for a number of years and rarely gets called out for her contribution. Recently though, this has been massive in that Lindsay was a key member in the team in setting up our new local parkrun in Potternewton. She gave up loads of her own time to make this happen and represented our club in the local community. Top this off with being a key volunteer coordinator the committee was unanimous in deciding Lindsay to be our well-deserved Member of the Moment. Enjoy the £10 bar tab! (drinks on you at the Xmas party?)

If you would like to nominate a club member you think has 'gone the extra mile' please email or speak to any Committee member.
