Crossgates Harriers is a friendly running club established in 1986. Based at John Smeaton Sports Centre, Leeds 15. We cater for runners over the age of 16 and have members who run 6 minute miles right down to 12 minute milers. There is no pressure to do races we have many members who simply run to keep fit. Please do not be intimidated by the thought of joining a running club you will be pleasantly suprised.


We usually run between 5-7 miles, normally in 3 groups to allow for different paces. Our slowest group is aimed at beginners and people wanting to improve steadily into the intermediate group.


If you want to come along for a run, join us at John Smeaton Sports Centre at 7.15 every Wednesday. There is ample car parking available, showers and a club available where we enjoy a social drink afterwards. The cost of joining the club is £10 per year or £23 if you wish to compete in races with a £2 discount. We also have a frequent "boot camp" style training session on a Saturday at Templenewsam


The Club has access to many races including both road and cross country which cover distances from fun runs right upto the full marathon. We are affiliated to England Athletics which means that you receive a £2 discount on all your races and the Club is guaranteed a place in the prestigious London Marathon.


We have successfully held beginners courses for people to progress to 5k and beyond and the latest course started in April 2016
