A scene from Run ForeverSheffield's celebrated annual adventure film festival will return to the city from 17–19 March as part of The Outdoor City Weekender. The festival will screen over 100 adventure and extreme sports films, with a host of running-related films scheduled across the weekend. 

For running fans, some of the highlights include: The Hard Way, the inspirational story of Bob Hayes, an 89-year-old trail runner who is in training for the Bighorn 50k ultramarathon.

Scheduled, also, is a film of Ricky Lightfoot’s attempt on the Bob Graham Round in winter, one of the hardest challenges in the UK. Sticking with the Bob Graham Round, Nicky Spinks will feature in Run Forever (pictured), which follows Nicky’s record-breaking attempt at the Lake District event.

There will be a screening of Mira, a film that follows the journey of a spirited Nepali village girl on her pursuit to being a world-recognised mountain runner. The inspirational story is filmed across Nepal, Hong Kong, Australia, Spain, Italy and France tells the story of Mira aiming to compete against the world's best mountain runners.

These are just three films in what is a jam-packed weekend full of running tales on the big screen. More information on all of the running films set to be shown is available at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival website.
