This summer will see the second staging of one of the UK’s most innovative trail races, the Round Sheffield Run. The multi-stage running event takes competitors around some of the best trails and scenic parkland in Sheffield, and with a June date (Sunday 28), will see the city in its summer splendour.
The 11 timed stages make up 20k of the 24.5k route, with each section of the race broken down into separate stages. Each stage is raced and competitors will receive both results for each stage as well as a combined overall result.
Runners will be given the opportunity to relax, regroup with their friends and refocus before the next stage begins: the unique concept is said to create a special vibe for the day’s proceedings.
The course moves through trails and scenery within the city limits and includes parts of Endcliffe Park, Ringlinlow, Limb Valley, Eccleshall Woods, Beauchief Golf Course, Chancet Woods, Graves Park, Lees Hall Golf Course, Meersbrook Park and Brincliffe Edge.
Entry for the event is now open, with registration priced at £24 per person, or £21 per pair. More information is available here.
