City Centre Score & Social at Sheffield City
Wed 31st Jan 2018 Start Times 18:30 - 19:15
Great to see such a good turn out on a very wet & cold weekday night. Thank you for trying out the Maprun app. In general it was pretty successful. Definitely worth another try maybe outside the city centre where hopefully the GPS will work better.
