The Big Running Weekend

Please note that we are no longer taking entries for the BIGRW at this time. There will an announcement in due course. Apologies if you were excited enough to want to come along. Thanks…

The Big Running Weekend (BIGRW) is a family-friendly running festival in and around the stunning Ecclesall Woods in south west Sheffield. It is a celebration of all things trail running with a strong fun, community feel. For 2020 we are increasing the number of available entries as we have recruited more coaches to look after you and run the sessions. In addition we will be inviting more new brands to increase your opportunity to try new shoes, packs and equipment. Well why not, it’s all part of the fun.

Please note there are no entries on the day / weekend. BIGRW is not for profit.
