Sunday 27th July 2014 - Starting and Finishing in Graves Park
Welcome to Sheffield Trail-Rush™
Sheffield Trail-Rush™ takes place on Sunday 27th July 2014.
Sheffield Trail-Rush™ is a trail race based on the famous Sheffield Round Walk route, which is approximately 24.5km (15.2 miles) in length and includes a grand tour of Sheffield’s beautiful parks and woodland, whilst skirting the Peak District National Park. Mostly linked by footpaths and trails, our race route is 79% off-road and 21% on-road.
The Sheffield Trail-Rush™ course is challenging and adventurous with 700m (2,300 ft) of ascent in total as we follow the fantastic route of the Sheffield Round Walk. Already dubbed the ‘Sheffield Round Race’, the route is well known to local runners, many of whom consider it to be one of the best urban trail runs in Sheffield… if not the entire north!
The course will be fully way marked, signed and marshalled. We are also using an advanced digital timing system to briefly ‘time-out’ competitors at road crossings if it is not safe to cross immediately. This will give runners a genuine and continuous race experience.
Sheffield Trail-Rush™ starts and finishes in Graves Park where we will be providing free car parking and an exciting, family friendly atmosphere at the Event Centre that is also next to the annual Sheffield Fun Fair.
Whether you are a first time trail runner or a seasoned pro, Sheffield Trail-Rush™ offers you a safe yet challenging trail running experience.
We look forward to seeing you there!
