From the team that created the category defining Conti Thunder Run 24hr (the very first 24hr off-road relay race of its kind), comes another ground-breaking round the clock challenge in the city of Sheffield with the Scimitar Thunder Run: Steel City 24.

Over the weekend of 1st & 2nd September 2018, Scimitar Thunder Run: Steel City 24 will be the very first 24 hour run to be held within a UK city, yet still offers a fully traffic free, off-road course.  The event is to be held in Graves Park, Sheffield’s biggest city park, and will see runners of all abilities coming to test their mettle and see how many 5km laps they can achieve in a day and a night.

Categories are open to soloists, and relay teams of up to 8 members, so that means there’s a challenge suitable for pretty much every runner.  The course for Steel City 24 is traffic free & all off-road yet is not as technical like the courses found at events such as the Conti Thunder Run.  The accessible 5km lap is contested primarily over tarmac tracks & gravel paths, with the addition of some grassy stretches and woodland trails that can be found in the park.  The engaging, undulating nature of the course and stunning, wide reaching views will help keep the runners going out lap after lap.

For the less experienced runners the 5km lap length is ideal, allowing teams to break their challenge down into bite-sized chunks.  Whereas the hardened 24hr trail runners and cross-country racers get to use the fast course to see just how far you can go in the allotted time.  We think we know hard work when we see it, so whatever your goal, every finisher is rewarded for their efforts with a quality finishers medal and complimentary technical running shirt from Scimitar Sports.

Camping from Friday through to Sunday is included in the entry fee, you can even bring along your family and supporters for free too.  Everything else for a great weekend’s action is set to with facilities including live results and chip timing, hot showers, flushing toilets, a team of masseurs to help keep you in top form, great catering & encouraging commentary.  What’s more there’s a whole host of activities available in the park to keep the rest of the family entertained all weekend with an animal park, two playgrounds, a boating lake all available and acres of fields to play in.
