Go for it, run!
As well as being a hive of creativity, Sheffield is very outdoorsy city. And running is one of our favourite activities. If you feel like you’ve been on the sofa a bit too much, grab your trainers and find out what you’ve been missing.
Why everyone’s running
The benefits are more varied than you might think. Yes running burns calories and helps to keep you fit, but it’s also good for your general wellbeing, including your mental health. Lots of students, for example, join running groups when they move to the city so they can make new friends. It’s a social thing!
You could combine your run with our Sheffield Playlist Adventure for musical inspiration while you run.
Have a race
Not because you’re super-competitive (although you might be!) but just for the fun of it. Racing your family and friends across your local park is the ideal introduction to how good running feels!
Have a walk
Alternatively why not get creative on your daily walk? Take notice of the colours, shapes and textures around you. You could even take pictures of things that are the same colour and post them online.
