University Academy Keighley Running Track
Wednesday – Track Sessions at University Academy Keighley
Meeting location (and changing/toilet facilities) – at the community entrance to University Academy Keighley (UAK) there is a “Tick” Centre sign here. Access to the track is via the new school building alongside the cafe. Access to changing rooms, toilets and the dining/social areas is on the right as you go to the track. You will also need to sign-in with the UAK staff, so they know who is in the premises. This is the usual location – please check the Noticeboard page for any changes.
Public transport –
a) 20 minutes’ walk from Keighley railway station (every 15 minutes from Skipton and Keighley) and 30 mins from Leeds and Bradford via Shipley.
b) 15-20 minutes’ walk from Keighley bus station – route 662 from Bingley, Saltaire and Bradford (every 15-30 minutes at weekends); or route 760 from Keighley to Leeds (half-hourly at weekends)
Driving directions – if approaching from Bingley/Bradford direction, go through Keighley, but instead of turning onto the new dual-carriageway towards Skipton, continue to the next roundabout, over the railway, and join the old Skipton Road. Take the first road left, and “UAK” (University Academy Keighley) is about 100 yards on your left. If approaching from Hebden Bridge or Halifax, go through Haworth or Denholme onto the A629 and continue through the centre of Keighley towards Skipton; but instead of taking the new dual-carriageway towards Skipton take the old Skipton Road at the roundabout near Cliffe Castle Park.
Car-parking – on UAK car-park in front of the school building. (Try to avoid parking elsewhere; if you have to park on the street, please respect residents and local parking restrictions.)
Bradford Grammar School Parking
Free parking at the Bradford Grammar School car park Frizinghall Road entrance
Bradford Grammar School Gymnasium
Entrance to the Gymnasium is just around the corner from the swimming pool, under the archway and opposite the sports fields
Monday – Strength & Conditioning at Bradford Grammar School
Meeting location – in the ‘Senior gym’ (also known as the old gym). See below for details of how to find it. This is the usual location – please check the Noticeboard page for any changes.
Driving directions – if approaching from the Bradford or Saltaire directions go to the traffic lights at Ems Lane and Manningham Lane by the south gates to Lister Park (beside a pizzeria and The Park pub). Turn away from Lister Park onto Frizinghall Road and then immediately right into the school car park through the big gates. (If approaching from Canal Road, turn up by Frizinghall railway station, climb the hill and turn left immediately before the traffic lights before Lister Park). There is a small car park on the left and a large one on your right – drive up a small slope and the entrance is towards the top for the right-hand car park. (You might have to drive around to find a space depending on what activities are going on in school.) Then walk along the road between the two car parks and through the barrier. The tennis courts will be on your left and the school on the right. Keep walking between the swimming pool on your right and the large building (the new gym) on your left. Turn right past the swimming pool and follow the side of the building, up a small flight of steps. The entrance to the gym is now down a few steps to your right (directly underneath the elevated corridor). There are changing rooms and toilets inside, through the gym.
Car-parking – the school car-park is off Frizinghall Road.
Public transport –
a) 5 minutes’ walk from Frizinghall railway station.
b) 2-3 minutes from the bus-stop on Keighley Road (bus 662 from Keighley and Bingley to Bradford Interchange, every 15 minutes in the early evening and 30 minutes later). Walk down Frizinghall Road or through the school grounds, past the main school entrance, to the car park and then below that is the old gym.
