5k Run Leeds Events

Whether you’re looking for your next or first running challenge, why not give a 5k run in Leeds a go at one of Runthrough UK’s upcoming events? We pride ourselves on organising some of the best attended and supported races in Leeds and West Yorkshire. Our calendar hosts 5k, 10k and a half marathon events all year round, and we’re delighted to welcome runners of all abilities.

Achieve your goals with a Leeds 5k run

It might be the personal goal you’ve set yourself, or just another 5k to keep you fit until your next 10k. If you are a beginner, then a 5k race is the perfect first step in the path to running further distance, such as a 10k, half marathon and eventually even a marathon. But no matter your level, each 5k race caters to runners of all abilities and provides a warm welcome to both participants and supporters. You’ll be spurred on by the ever-present support at one of our Runthrough UK races.

Let Runthrough UK help you on your journey

In addition to the world class support at our races, you’ll also find hydration stations and on-the-ground support workers on hand to help if needed. Join Runthrough UK today and show everybody (and yourself) what you’re made of at our next 5k run in Leeds.

5k Run Leeds FAQs

What is the average time for a 5k?

The average time to complete a 5k in the UK is just over half an hour (00:33:54 to be exact). However, it’s important to remember that the time is all relative to the level of the runner, and simply completing the race is a huge achievement in itself. Once you’ve completed your first 5k, you can always run again at our next scheduled 5k run in Leeds and try to beat your time. Or, set yourself an even higher target and tackle one of our 10k events.

Where is the 5k run in Leeds?

We host a wide range of 5k races in Leeds throughout the year, with locations varying from inspiring routes around Leeds city centre to stunning parkland laps at Roundhay Park (one of Europe’s biggest city parks!).
With transport links available from Leeds Railway Station to West Yorkshire, the North, West Midlands, North East, Scotland and even London (in approximately two hours), our 5k runs in Leeds welcome participants from near and far.

Are there any 5k runs near Leeds?

As well as organising races within the city, Runthrough UK are also proud to offer a number of events close to Leeds and West Yorkshire if you’re looking to get out and stretch your legs. Some of our 5k runs near to Leeds include events at Liverpool’s Stanley Park and Manchester’s Heaton Park and Media City.
Keep an eye on our calendar to see our full selection of 5k runs in Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Salford, Warrington and other nearby cities.

Do you also host 10k and half marathons?

At Runthrough UK, we’re proud of our well-organised and welcoming running events for runners of every level. You’ll find a full calendar of 5ks, 10ks and half marathons all available within the local Leeds area.
