Peaty’s Steel City DH is a mini downhill race held annually in Greno Woods Sheffield. It has been running since 2011 and raising money to fund trail building and maintenance in the woods ever since. It is a not for profit race with everyone volunteering their time and all proceeds reinvested in the woods making it the biggest little race on the calender.
With 200 racers and thousands of spectators the woods are transformed for a day bringing an atmosphere unlike any other race. With racers from 10 to 70 years old it is a very inclusive and family friendly event with Mums and Dads racing alongside their kids. 2014 actually saw more women racing than any other UK race.
The race is very well supported by local, national and international sponsors making sure all winners of the race, competitions and auctions are rewarded very well.
The race is organised by Steve Peat and fellow race directors: Nick Hamilton, Steve Hardcastle and Henry Norman
