Welcome to Leeds Gryphons Cross Country
The Cross Country Club for the University of Leeds
We welcome absolutely everyone from beginners through to elite athletes and have even developed athletes who started as complete beginners who have gone on to represent their country. The club is ranked as one of the top university clubs in the country. Despite this, supported by the University’s elite sports programme (the Gryphon Programme), we are aiming to build on this even further in the coming years. The LUUCCC boasts a number of runners who run for their county and furthermore we have runners who run either internationally or have strong international aspirations.
We also have a strong emphasis on enjoyment and we have a number of members who take things slightly more leisurely. In addition we offer a Run England jogging club (Run Leeds Uni) purely for those wanting to get fit or lose some weight in a more social environment than just running by themselves. As a result the club has a massive range of standards and there is always somebody to run with no matter how slow or fast you are.
