The UK’s biggest outdoors event for outdoor people ‘Cliffhanger’ is upsizing this July with a move from Millhouses to the 200 acre Graves Park - Sheffield’s largest open space.
Organisers Sheffield City Council and Heason Events are teaming up with adventure sports events company RatRace to offer a ‘festival within a festival‘ as an added extra to Cliffhanger’s unrivaled showcase of outdoors pursuits to give the weekend that quintessential summer festival vibe.
Rat Race BASECAMP is designed to offer a family-friendly music arena with a super line-up over two nights, coupled with a superb camp-site within Graves Park itself. For those who wish to stretch their legs, the Rat Run on Saturday 7th July will offer a 5k jaunt around Graves Park and for those who want to forage a bit further afield, Sunday’s Rat Ride will offer a 50km cycle-sportive ride into the Peak District.
The new partnership also means visitors will for the first time be able to buy tickets online in advance as well as on the gate on the day. Anyone pre-purchasing will save 50p on the price of a £7 day ticket and get a £10 Rat Race gift voucher.
For lovers of The Great Outdoors Cliffhanger 2012 promises to be the ultimate family-friendly weekend.
