Martin Browne, a Leeds Beckett run leader, offers a multi-terrain loop of Weetwood! Perfect for those runners that like to mix it up…
This six mile loop is a perfect mix of country and city, of trail and tarmac. Starting from Leeds Beckett University, the route takes you along the Meanwood Valley Trail from Meanwood Park to Adel Woods before emerging into the residential streets of Adel. The last two miles are a fast downhill back to the University campus.
This run route covers a small section of the Meanwood Valley Trail. The trail is a way marked footpath that runs for a distance of 7 miles (11 km) from the statue of (former Leeds mayor) Henry Rowland Marsden, 1878, on Woodhouse Moor, close to the University of Leeds, through Headingley, Meanwood and Adel to Breary Marsh, Golden Acre Park, where it meets the Leeds Country Way. For most of its route it is the official Leeds link to the Dales Way.
