The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Mt. Marathon

Now in its fifteenth year, Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) is the largest urban adventure film festival in the UK, bringing people together to celebrate outdoor life and the adventures it offers. While screenings for 2020 are waiting to be rescheduled, the ShAFF team are curating weekly watchlists of free online films for your home viewing adventures.

They're posting a new film, free to view online, on the ShAFF Facebook page at 7pm every day, Monday to Friday. Then, at the end of the week, they're bringing the full watchlist together on their website for you to watch at your own pace.

Follow the links below to watch films from week 6:
North of Known
2015 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Gavin McClurg is back with one of the most absurd and preposterous expeditions that has ever been undertaken – a full unsupported traverse of the Alaska Range by foot and paraglider.

Guilt Trip
The Salomon team is feeling guilty. They travel the globe in search of snow while the climate continues to change. The only thing greater than this group of skier's desire to claim a first ski descent on Greenland's second highest peak, Mont Forel, is the size of their carbon footprint to get there. They bring along renowned climate scientist, Alun Hubbard, to gather data to help determine how much the Greenland ice sheet is contributing to global sea level rise.

Boys In The Bugs
Matt Segal and Will Stanhope have spent a decade climbing the world's hardest cracks. Now they travel deep into the Canadian wilderness to the infamous Bugaboo Mountains where they are looking for the ultimate next-level crack climb.

Danny McAskill's Wee Day Out
Want to see what mountain bike rider Danny MacAskill does on his day off? Wee Day Out explores the rural landscape around Scotland in a film that sets out to capture the simple fun of a ride in the country with moments of incredible riding and a touch of humour.

Mt. Marathon
One of the oldest, fastest, hardest, toughest… and shortest mountain races in the world.
