Urban Challenge 2017

Cavendish Urban Challenge – Run. Spin. Climb. Abseil.

Help raise funds for Cavendish Cancer Care by taking on the Urban Challenge.

Date: Sunday 9th July 2017

Location: Sheffield Hallam University, Howard St, Sheffield S1 1WB

Registration Fee: £25 per person

Sponsorship Target: £100 per person

What is it?: Take on the Urban Challenge and get your blood pumping with a 2km dash, a 1km bike sprint, tackle a 12-floor stair climb to reach your final challenge: an adrenaline-fuelled 120ft abseil.

What to expect

The route will take you on Arundel Gate, Furnivall Street, Brown Street, Paternoster Row and up Surrey Lane. This is to be completed twice to ensure the distance of 2km is met. From here you will tackle a 1km sprint on the bike. This is part where you need to be quick, you time will make a difference! From completing the cycle, you will be directed into the Owen Building where you will climb to the 12th floor. Sounds easy? You would have just done a 2km run and a sprint on the bike, your legs will be feeling quite tired! You’re at the top and there is only one way down! Eight Point Two will be looking after you up there so get ready for the adrenaline-fuelled adventure abseil.
