Last Chance To Run Round Sheffield!
Fancy a run in the UK's greenest city this weekend?
We're a little late to the table with this one, but entries close today for what looks like a fantastic weekend of running in Sheffield! Yes, the Round Sheffield Run returns this weekend with its original and creative concept that takes runners on a journey around some of the best trails in Sheffield.
How often have you thought during a run or race: “It would be great to have a bit of a break right now”? This race format allows you to do exactly that – work hard during the timed stages, and take it easy in between – allowing you to enjoy the journey, reflect on the stage just gone, and exchange pleasantries with your fellow runners.
The unique format breaks the route down into stages with each stage being raced. Competitors receive results for each stage as well as a combined overall result at the end. This gives you the chance to relax a little between stages, regroup with friends and fellow runners, and refocus before the next stage begins.
Competitors are allowed to walk or jog in between stages. There is a maximum time limit for each 'Liaison Stage' which roughly equates to a moderate / slow walking pace. This creates a special and unique social vibe at the race. Participants set off every few seconds across their starting block so (unless you’re particularly speedy) there will always be someone to chase down!
The start and finish area in Endcliffe Park welcomes participants with a relaxed atmosphere. Local artisan coffee, wood fired pizza, sandwiches, burgers and other delightful treats will be on offer to compliment a Thornbridge beer or two to celebrate your accomplishment. The relaxed upbeat atmosphere provides enjoyment for you, your supporters and the rest of the family too.
A previous entrant said: "One of the best-organised, friendliest and most fun runs I've ever done." Which will come as no surprise to organisers who say: "The RSR is all about amplifying the best bits of running: the atmosphere around the course, the laughs, the smiles, the whoops, the high fives, the shared food and drink."
