The Outdoor City Weekender


The Outdoor City Weekender returns in 2017 with an exciting line-up of action-packed events taking place Friday 17-Sunday 19 March.

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural weekender, the 2017 edition promises to be a weekend of epic proportions with something for everyone.

Once again, the headline events of the weekend will be the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF), the Climbing Works International Festival (CWIF) and The Magnificent Seven hill climb challenge.

The 2017 Weekender programme will also see the introduction of brand new MTB event with The Howard Street Dual. Thought to be the first of its kind, this urban dual race will take place right in the heart of the city centre, with riders going head-to-head, two at a time, down a course in an exhilarating knockout-style event.

In addition to the headliners, a host varied fringe events will also be taking place over the course of the weekend including Yoga in the Winter Garden; City Orienteering; Accelerate's Adventure Run; Trail Advantage Mountain Bike Coaching and a Cotic Bikes Demo Day, as well as a series of volunteer day opportunities from Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust.

The Weekender is Sheffield’s celebration of the people and places that gives us our unique identity as The Outdoor City.

Further event details are still to be announced and coming soon, so keep your eyes on The Outdoor City Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels for the latest announcements.
