The Round Sheffield Run will be at maximum quota when it hosts its third annual event on Sunday 26 June. Over 2,000 runners will tackle the multi-stage running event - split over 11 stages with breaks to regroup and refresh - which takes competitors around some of the best trails and scenic parkland in Sheffield.
The event has become renowned for its innovative set-up, the genesis of which came from concepts pioneered in enduro style Mountain Bike racing. 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.
This formt allows for an enhanced social vibe; competitors can race in groups and regather on the recovery sections, as well as being able to race in a pair so you can encourage each other round.
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.
