small park BIG RUN programme 2022

small park BIG RUN is back in the park! This year we will have a full programme in the park once again (see below) and how much are we looking forward to that!?

Even so, we have loved the engagement we received over the past two years when people from many different places – or those from Sheffield, who were not in the city at the time of the run- have been able to take part from wherever they are.

So we have two events running, the park event which you can enter here. And the ‘DIY event’ , which you can enter here.

We will also be looking for people to help us support the event by being marshals over the 24 hours. Can you spare an hour? If so please sign up here .

Some of the programme will be available online as well.
