Welcome to Leeds University Cross Country Club! We welcome all standards of athlete from complete beginners to internationals and have not only cross country runners, but middle/long distance track events, road (5k/10k/half/marathon), ultra, trail and fell running and even the odd race walker from time to time.
Attendance at training is up to you, with some members training everyday and some whenever they can fit it in, so there is no pressure to attend all session.
We hold socials on a weekly/fortnightly basis, with regular updates on Facebook. We also NEVER fail to have a good time after a race!
Everyone is encouraged to attend all the races as there is no limit to the amount of people an teams we can enter. We regularly race against other universities at Manchester, Edinburgh and at our own Leeds Relays before Christmas. After Christmas we compete in Varsity against Leeds Beckett, culminating in BUCS (the university national championships) at the end of January. Following this we hope to get another couple of university races in before the Isle of Man Easter festival, which is not something you want to miss! For more information on these events check out the fixtures link above.
For more regular races closer to home, we compete in the local PECO cross country league, running from November to March.
