Rat Run – Saturday 7th July

A trail run with a twist: The Rat Run! Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the Cliffhanger event and stretch your legs with a quick blast around Graves Park a little surprise to finish. Starting from our Rat Race BASECAMP the fully-waymarked 5km trail run will take you on a guided tour around the best Graves Park has to offer, winding its way over undulating forest and parkland of this vast Sheffield location with few off-piste diversions along the way. Then before you know it, you’ll be back at the event arena and lining up to take on the final hurdle, The Rat Race Obstacle Zone, before finally crossing the finishline to rapturous applause from your friends, family and supporters.

Registration, start and finish will all be found at the new Rat Race BASECAMP area within the Cliffhanger event at Graves Park, Sheffield. Parking will be via the Charles Ashmore Road entrance off Meadowhead - click here to find out how to get there.
