Wecome to STAC…. A friendly and supportive running club based in East Leeds. We are a medium-sized Club, with a Membership base of 200 people of mixed ages and running abilities. We will celebrate our 40th Anniversary in 2023 and we are proud that some of our Members have remained with us since our very first run.

New Members: Are always welcome to pop along to one of our training sessions and join us, support is always there via coaches and Members and you’ll be placed with a Group that matches your running needs and ability. Come along for a few trial sessions before completing the joining form / process. We look forward to meeting you.

Training: takes place throughout the week in a variety of locations in East Leeds. We have over 20 England Athletics qualifed run leaders and we offer sessions for the elites preparing for the big race to those just wanting a social run and everything in-between. You can see what's on and book on this week's sessions, plus learn more about some of our regular sessions in the training section.

Club Championship League(s): We hold Club Championship (League) Races each year which include local road and trail races at a variety of distances that will appeal to all.

Parkrun: has been a great introduction to running for many of our members, providing them with a 5k platform to build on. Member representation at our local parkrun event, Temple Newsam, including Run Directors. We also do a parkrun league competition for our members of all abilities.

Our beginners course is held over 20 weeks, commencing in March/April. We have an experience Group of leaders and volunteers who will guide you through sessions that will enable you to achieve the goal of running non-stop for 30 minutes. We believe everyone has the ability to fulfil their running ambitions. More information here.
