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 2 or3 groups to allow for different paces. On the first Wednesday of every month we are holding beginners classes to anybody new to running or who simply want to run just a few miles. To book a place on this you will need to contact us beforehand.


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 £20 if you wish to compete in races with a £2 discount.


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.
