SMILEY PACES INFORMATION
We meet every Thursday evening at 7:00pm usually at Millhouses Park, Sheffield. Please see Facebook and on our Calendar for details about the session and any specific requirements. During winter months you will need a headtorch and a hiviz jacket/gilet. For the off-road week you will need trail shoes.
If you are new to Smiley Paces, please look at the link "Are we the right club for you" to check we meet your requirements.
The SMILEY PACES are an informal Sheffield based womens running group.
We formed as a small group of like minded women up for a challenge and have morphed in to a large, diverse group with a wide range of ages and abilities.
Share your achievements! Please let us know about any race you have done so that we can celebrate and share your achievements. Please note that anything you write on this form may be used by Smiley Paces on their website, Facebook page or at the Awards Evening.
Smiley Paces organise monthly Sunday off-road runs. Details will be given on Facebook usually a couple of weeks beforehand. The run is usually about 6 miles off-road lasting about 1.5 hours. You should be able to cope with it if you can run for at least 30 minutes without needing to stop.
For most of the Sunday runs, you will need off-road or trail shoes and wet/cold weather gear. You may also need spare shoes and clothes for after.
Wherever possible, we arrange to have coffee/cakes after.
There are 6 races to choose from, your best 4 count. All you have to do is enter and race as many of the named races as you can. Points are awarded based on your finishing position with 1 point added for every year over 40 (as of 1st January 2019). That's it!
