Anticipation for The Outdoor City Weekender has ramped up another notch as a trailer has been released promoting the action-packed event.

Taking place from 17 to 19 March at venues across the city, the event promises to be a weekend of high-octane fun celebrating Sheffield’s thirst for adventure.

The headline events of the weekend are Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) at the Showroom Cinema and Sheffield Hallam University; the Climbing Works International Festival (CWIF), which attracts professional climbers from around the world; and The Magnificent Seven hill climb – a 27-mile cycling challenge featuring seven of Sheffield’s toughest inclines.

And new for this year is the Howard Street Dual – a head-to-head race in which two riders battle to see who can make it down a purpose-built track on Howard Street the fastest.

There will also be a programme of Fringe events for all the family to get involved with, including runs, cycling events and many more.

The trailer is a true Sheffield collaboration, created by Salt Street Productions and featuring music by Sheffield-based band The Half Earth.
