There are mysterious sounds and sightings being reported around Sheffield. Its up to you and only you to save yourself from the figures lurking in the shadows. We predict that the zombies will attack Sheffield on Saturday 27th October 2018, so its up to you to gather your troops and take on the zombies. The undead will be lurking in the shadows of the trees for an estimated 5km. Are you ready to run for your life? Each runner will be equipped with a utility life belt which contains three life tags. The zombies throughout the course will be aiming to steal your life tags and youll have to be nimble and quick to make it past the infected hordes. If you lose all three dont worry the virus is slow to take effect and you should have time to complete the race. You will still be infected, but our decontamination team will do their best to reverse the effects at the finish line. We promise: 1. Zombies will only ever take one life tag at a time 2. There will be no intentional physical contact between Zombies and Runners 3. Zombies will never intentionally obstruct you The decontamination team will meet you at the finish with your medal and with a FREE glass of celebratory decontamination fizz. There will also be plenty of cake to replace some of the energy you've burned, and your own Survival Certificate. Run on your own, as a pair or in a team. Totally traffic-free, fast and flat route. No time limits, no age restrictions, no pressure - just LOADS of fun. Come and join us!

Back for a fourth year, starting from the beautiful village of Langsett situated on the edge of the Peak District national park. This is a super fast technical 10k route.

Holmfirth Harriers Athletic Club is proud to present the Holmfirth 15 and the Holmfirth 10Km.
2018 will recognize the 50th anniversary since the 15-mile race was first staged, so whether it is your first attempt at the distance, or you have run before, why not join us to celebrate this achievement.
It is interesting that the very first "The Suncharm 15" race promotion also included the inaugural Holmfirth open junior road races that were then moved to another date the following year.
This is a no-gimmicks event, a proper cross country race - no sergeant majors screaming or hurling mud at you, this is a back to basics: the mud is already here, the fences are your hurdles, the ditches and fallen trees are your challenge. The course is a good old fashioned cross country challenge set in 250 acres of a private country estate in North Yorkshire; it winds its way through woodland and open countryside, over boggy terrain and muddy tracks.
Flat, good surface, out and back. All races start at 10:00 am.

The lovely village of Slaithwaite provides the perfect setting for another out and back along the canal. The lovely mill town captures the North in every sense, friendly folk, beautiful hillsides and plenty of tea shops, what more could anyone ask for.
"Slaithwaite (pronounced 'slawit' or 'Slaithwaite' by locals) is a true "Yorkshire grit" mill town straddled by the viaduct and bisected by the canal. Slaithwaite retains its essential character, despite being used as the setting for the television series, "Where the Heart is" and for some of "Last of the Summer Wine". A lovely church, the fine 17th Century Dartmouth Estate Manor House, and other buildings dating from the 18th Century combine with large central mills to give quality to this industrial village that was once home to Luddites".
