Sponsoring Sheffield Trail Rush
We are very happy to be sponsoring Sheffield Trail-Rush.
What is it?
Sheffield Trail-Rush is a running 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 route passes through Meersbrook park – just a stone’s throw from our base, Sum Studios.
We will be sponsoring Sheffield Trail-Rush by donating acupuncture prizes to the winners. But fear not, you don’t need to be fast to benefit as we will also be giving out discount vouchers at registration to all participants.
The Sheffield Trail-Rush™ course is challenging and adventurous with 700m (2,300 ft) of ascent in total. 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 (TBC) and an exciting, family friendly atmosphere at the Event Centre. Whether you are a first time trail runner or a seasoned pro, Sheffield Trail-Rush™ offers you a safe yet challenging trail running experience.
Whilst this is a “race” it is also a great day out (as can be seen by the pictures on their site!) and appeals to serious and non serious runners alike.
If you are looking for a fun race then this is for you. Entering a race is a great motivator for getting you out and running regularly.
As the acupuncturist at The treatment Space, I am a keen runner which is why we are Sponsoring Sheffield Trail-Rush. I’m looking forward to it already – though undecided if I shall be helping or partaking!!
More information about the race can be found on the Sheffield Trail-Rush site.
