Coming up in 2020….
There’s plenty to be excited about over the next twelve months here at Accelerate Running Events, and we are giddy like kids at Christmas!
We have new events, handed over events and the return of tried and tested events. Here’s the lowdown for what’s happening in 2020:
January sees the return of the Canal Canter, with the first of four races happening on the 26th.
February has the first Bradfield Bash on the 5th, the first of a hilly five mile series set to complement the Canal Canter.
March sees the Big Running Weekend back at Ecclesall Woods for a weekend of running, talks, challenges and pizza!
In April we will be heading into the woods for the Ecclesall Endurance, a looped 12 hour ultra running challenge. On the 26th of the month the second Canal Canter is upon us, as well as hopefully a bit of sunshine!
In May there’s the second of the Bradfield Bash races on the 6th, and the chance to enjoy the views as the evenings get lighter.
In June there’s something for the masochistic among you, with a brand new event at the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park – the Legacy Loop Ultra – 6 or 12 hours on a 1km loop of traffic-free tarmac. If this sounds like your cup of tea then keep the 20th free!
The third Canal Canter is on 26th July, and this will be where the competition for the league will start to hot up.
August is host to the third Bradfield Bash on the 5th, and it also sees the epic tour of the Peak District that is Dig Deep back at Whirlow on the 28-29th, with a 10k 12 mile, 30 mile and 60 mile races on the cards.
In September we will be hosting an old favourite of ours, the Ladybower 50 race series. This event is new to us this year and it will be fun to be organising instead of running it!
Are you exhausted just reading about all these races yet? No? Good, because October has the final Canal Canter on the 25th, with prizes to hand out to league winners and those who have completed all four races.
In November the fourth and final Bradfield Bash takes place, again with league prizes to be handed out to the dedicated runners who have taken part. Plus, if you manage to complete all four Canal Canters AND all four Bradfield Bashes there’ll be a special treat heading your way!
December: Ok, have you just read all that? December will be solely dedicated to sleeping and prepping for the even bigger and better things we have planned for 2021!
