Organised by the lovely folks behind WoodRun in association with Sheffield’s leading independent running store Accelerate, The Big Running Weekend base camp will be at the JG Graves Woodland Discovery Centre in the beautiful surroundings of Ecclesall Woods.
The weekend will offer a multitude of running activities that cater for both beginners and experienced runners, including led-runs, workshops, talks, coaching sessions to help you improve your technique and a chance to test exclusive shoes and kit.
A number of running experts will be on hand all weekend to offer friendly advice, while big running brands such as Inov-8 , Scott, Saucony and Silva will also be getting involved.
If you like a bit of competition, you’ll also be able to challenge yourself with the timed Hill Sprint or the BIG Running Weekend Challenge, where you’ll run a maximum of 47km from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon, covering three of The Outdoor City Run Routes.
Not just for individuals, The Big Running Weekend is also all about running activity the whole family can get involved with, so there’ll be a number of activities specially catering to junior runners too.
