3-2-1 is Run England’s project which aims to provide a range of marked running or jogging routes across the country that anyone can have a go at. Local organisers - working in partnership with athletics clubs and Run England groups - can mark safe, accurate and fun routes that are 3, 2 and 1 miles, kilometres or laps – suitable target distances for anyone who wishes to have a go.

There are three alternative routes on offer in each location, all clearly and accurately marked, to provide not only a fun and safe route to use in some great areas of the city for running, but also a way to monitor progress and set challenges.

The routes will be launched on Saturday 1st December at 9:30am at Graves Park, Sheffield.

Craig Blain, Run England Area Coordinator for the North, said: “The launch of the 321 routes are great news for Sheffield, the city already has a strong number of Run England groups and athletics clubs and the addition of the running routes offers yet another opportunity for local residents to pull on their trainers and give it a go.”
