Supporting athletics throughout Leeds


Supported by England Athletics



There are over 25 athletics clubs in Leeds and 8 of them have facilities for juniors from around 8 years old.

NB all clubs do running but only some clubs do jumps and throws.

If you are interested in training for athletics and taking part in more competitions, contact your local club.

Clubs with junior sections are listed on the reverse of this sheet.  Look for the club nearest you, look at its website and make contact if you are interested.

NB some clubs are currently full but are accepting onto waiting lists.


Local athletics clubs organise a number of running races throughout the year many of which have junior races and/or fun runs.
