Athletics

Overview

We have some of the best Track and Field facilities in the region, enabling you to keep up with your training regime or even if you just fancy a run around our 400m track. In addition to the track we also have a throwing cage, long jump, high jump as well as a fully marked javelin field. These facilities are available for hire, and there are several community clubs and sports camps that use our facilities.

Plus Icon Athletic Union Club

Our Athletics club offers opportunities to train and compete on a regular basis in Track and Field, Cross Country, Road Racing and Race Walking throughout the year in both open events and Inter University competition.

Whether you are aiming for the Olympics or just want to have a go, we have the coaches who will give you the opportunity to try a new event and realise your goals.

Our major focus is on the three major BUCS events; Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

Our professional coaches deliver event-specific training across all disciplines in athletics; Sprints, Jumps, Throws, Endurance and Walks. We also deliver additional training components that are applicable to all events and sports performance.

All athletes are encouraged to join in these progressive and challenging weekly sessions vital to developing robust balanced athletes to maximize their potential in their chosen event.

In partnership with Run England, Leeds Beckett provide students, staff and community members the opportunity to join our FREE recreational running club. Sessions take place every Wednesday evening from beginning of September to the end of July (excluding Christmas and Easter holidays).  

The group is open to runners of all abilities, with particular focus on beginners through to intermediates. The group is led by two qualified Run Leaders, whose aim is to make you enjoy the session and get the most out of running. 

Beginners tend to run a distance of approximately 3 miles, at a pace of around 11-12 minutes per mile. Intermediates tend to cover a distance of around 3-6 miles with a 10 minute mile pace.
distances and pace times are a guide only.

The group meets on Wednesdays at 6pm at Carnegie Sports Centre, Headingley Campus, with free parking and shower facilities available if needed.
