About Run Leeds

Run Leeds is a citywide not-for-profit project, funded by Sport England and Leeds City Council. The main aim of the project is to support the Leeds running community. Whether you are yet to take that first step,  you are new to running, have been running for years, or returning to running after a major life change. Run Leeds is here to support you. To help keep you running, whatever life throws your way. 

There is still so much a project like this can achieve.  In a society recovering from a pandemic, a running community with a place for everyone is so needed.

Breaking down barriers to running and raising the participation of under-represented groups remains a high priority for us. With other key focus areas around mental and physical health, active aging and supporting active commuting. We aim to make running a sport that is diverse, accessible and sustainable!

The Run Leeds website is a social platform that brings runners together, as well as a place to find advice, inspiration or information that you might need. We have a number of different pages devoted to articles, a range of running routes, local running events, and details on the running groups across the city.

We also have a growing social media reach with our Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts. We love to update and share with you some of the amazing things happening in our Leeds run community.

So if you have a story to share, or a running event or new run club to promote then let us know! Any other ideas on how best to support and bring together our run community are most welcome. Please do get in touch.
