Race the Castles 1 National Urban Event

A National event at Sheffield City

On Sat 17th Aug 2019

View Flyer


The first event in the Race the Castles series which travels across Yorkshire over 9 days.

Although we had provisional agreement to use Mam Tor for this event and have invested a lot of effort in a new map, permission was denied.  We are now putting on an urban event in Sheffield.  The Sheffield Castle archaeological site will feature!

Safety & risk

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.


SYO has an agreed policy on the taking of photographs at events, based on national guidance. This provides a sensible balance between the benefits and risks associated with the taking and use of images. If you are unsure about acceptable practice, please speak to the event organiser.
