UPCOMING RUNS AND EVENTS (new runners welcome to all)
No events as a result of COVID 19 - Please see above update
Chapel Allerton Runners have been affiliated to the England Athletics since 1992. We enter a range of road, cross-country and fell races as individuals and as teams but most of all, we run because we enjoy it! People join the club for many reasons - preparing for your first race, or just as a way to keep fit and socialise. But the key reason to join is for the support, experience, competition, and friendship of our members. It's an easy way to meet new people – running and socialising together once or twice a week and is a great way to stick to your goals.
We have different route options each week from 4, 5 or 8 miles routes in groups of different speeds and abilities. In Winter we run on lit streets and 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 and organise a club trip abroad each year, an annual BBQ, an awards presentation after the Abbey Dash 10k race, and a Christmas dinner after our fancy dress Santa Run!
