Leeds Dock Relay Route

LS10 1LT

Distance: 1.45km

Elevation: 22ft


Starting and ending in the Royal Armouries Square, this flat circular route is just shy of a mile.

This is the route used for the Dock Relay Race, which is an annual event that has been going since 2019!

If you follow the ‘race track’ out of the dock, past Pizza Express, North Star cafe and the Yoga studio, and turn right onto Armouries Drive.

Keep to the pavement which bends round to the left and onto Chadwick Street. Turn right where Chadwick street meets Black Bull Street and continue straight for a small section before turning right again keeping the River Aire on your left.

Continue straight for a while, then turn right when you see the Nicola Adams mural. Turn right again and you will join back onto Armouries Drive, where you will see the Square and the finish line in the distance.


There is a cafe and toilets in the Royal Armouries Museum, as well as a range of cafes, including North Star at Leeds Dock.
