The Sheffield Against Cancer Urban Challenge

8th September 2016

On Sunday 9th October, Cavendish Cancer Care are challenging you to run, cycle and abseil your way through a unique city centre adventure the Sheffield Against Cancer Urban Challenge.

A brand new and unique concept for Sheffield, the Urban Challenge is an exciting opportunity to get some mates together, or just go it alone, and do something exhilarating to raise money in aid of supporting local people affected by cancer. Starting with a dash round the city centre streets, followed quickly by a static bike sprint, you'll then tackle a 12 floor stair climb, topped off with an adrenaline fuelled 120 ft abseil! A brave task that has something for everyone, and has never been done before in South Yorkshire, the Urban Challenge will be sure to get your pulse racing. You can register on the Sheffield Against Cancer website by following the link below:
