About Us

Woodhouse Moor parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in It's run in Woodhouse Moor. See Course page for more details.. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee at the Opposite Cafe (opposite the large white Leeds University Parkinson Building on Woodhouse Lane - please come and join us. Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.

  • Leeds Alumni: Many thousands of our students participate each year in our university recreational and competitive sporting programmes and we are proud of the impact these students make both on university life and after graduation on the wider world of sport. Our Sports Alumni tell us that some of their most fulfilling and enjoyable moments at the University came through their involvement in sport and volunteering. The University of Leeds Alumni Fund has helped provide financial support allowing the parkrun Leeds to get off the ground and become an established opportunity to particpiate and volunteer in sport. University fundraising programmes help ensure that we provide world-class support for current students

  • Access and Community Engagement: Access and Community Engagement (ACE) at the University of Leeds covers four core areas on University activity:
    • ACCESS - The University is committed to ensuring that the University is accessible to everyone regardless of age or background.
    • COMMUNITY - The University seeks to foster a positive relationship with its local communities.
    • WORKING CULTURALLY - The University sees its role as a provider of cultural events and facilities within the community as vital, productive and, essentially, reciprocal.
    • WORKING STRATEGICALLY - The University works in strategic partnership to support the city and region. We recognise that the University and the City are intrinsically linked and the success of both is vital to the social and cultural development of the city.
    ACE work closely with SPA to provide and deliver sustainable sports volunteering opportunities and are working in partnership on the parkrun Leeds to aid its success

  • Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences: The Centre for Sport & Exercise Sciences at the University of Leeds is in the top 10 in the 'Times Higher Education guide'. Sport and Exercise Science is the scientific study of how the body and mind cope with, handle and learn from the stresses of performance in sport and exercise. The department works closely with the Sport & Physical Activity Service on a number of projects and areas. parkrun Leeds has created a sustainable opportuntity for Sports Science students to volunteer and build on their volunteering contributions for their course requirements and their non academic CV's.
