Leeds Roller Dolls, the frst
all female roller derby team
in Yorkshire, have inspired an
appetite for mobile combat,
while the annual Dragon
Boat Race draws a crowd to
the banks of the River Aire
to see teams of 16 paddlers sprint along the water to
the beat of on-board drummers.
With so much sport to watch, you could be
forgiven for taking a break from your usual exercise
routine, were it not for the swimming pools, ftness
classes and even a 24 hour gym – all in easy reach
of the city’s hotels. But why stop there? For a real
change of scenery, take a jogging route that reveals
the city’s fascinating history, or try out one of Leeds’
quirky new keep-ft workouts, designed to make
light work of strenuous exercise.
SPECTATORS LOOKING FOR A MOMENT TO

AND RUGBY LEAGUE FANS TO HEADINGLEY
