The Round Sheffield Run in all its glory
26 July 2016
Cllr Leigh Bramall, Deputy Leader of Sheffield City Council and Cabinet Member for Business and Economy said: “If ever anyone doubted Sheffield’s credentials as The Outdoor City then I’d urge them to watch this video! It captures the passion for running held by so many in the city as well as our ubiquitous parks, woodlands, tracks and trails in their full glory. It is events like the Round Sheffield Run and our growing reputation as an adventure playground for people who love to walk, run, climb and ride which attract visitors to the city on mass.”
Kandoo events blend the best bits of big commercial races with a more local feel and as advocates for The Outdoor City all their runs showcase Sheffield and its unparalleled proximity between big city life and outdoor adventure. Kandoo host three running events annually; The Round Sheffield Run, the Sheffield TenTenTen and The Gateshead Trail 10k.
1711 runners took part in The Round Sheffield Run 2016 and half of those attending travelled from outside of Sheffield. Now in its 3rd year, the Round Sheffield Run has made a name for itself on the national running calendar and it’s easy to see why from the recently released video https://vimeo.com/173294567
Runners included singles and pairs representing all abilities and levels of fitness. The race was over 11 timed stages covering a total distance of 15miles or 24km.
Doug Banks, founder of Kandoo Events, said: “The unique format of The Round Sheffield Run brings out the competitive, fun and social elements of running, as well as showcasing some of the best views, trails and parkland in Sheffield; The Outdoor City. Watch our race video for a taste of what the event is all about.”
