Our club

We are a small, friendly running club based at Garforth Squash Club, just off Ninelands Lane, Garforth, Leeds. We run twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, meeting at 7.15pm in the squash centre lobby and running at 7.30pm. Most runs are around 5 to 7 miles, with some groups going out further.

 

The club organises the Leeds Country Way race each year and has it's own club social and handicap races too. We take part as a club in many organised events eg Peco, 10ks, half marathons and marathons.

 

See our 'Join us' page for more info, browse our site, our Facebook pages or email us for more information.
