The course takes runners through the picturesque Loxley Valley, past Damflask reservoir, and a fine day would make the run all the better.

The race, organised by the Sheffield City Striders Running Club is one of the most popular running events of the year.

It takes place annually in December. This year it will be run on Sunday December 1 and will begin at 9.30am.
