Geared up for KICX


Benchmark Recruit news

Benchmark is al geared up to support Kelham Island Cyclo Cross (KICX) by sponsoring the new cycling event. Due to take place on 6th May, this inspired race is a celebration of the industrial heritage of the steel city and combined with the passion for cycling from so many of Sheffield's inhabitants.

The cyclo cross circuit will weave its way through Kelham Island landmarks including the Museum and Bessemer Convertor and is already sold out in the men's categories. The event is also attracting great interest from female riders with places still available. 

"Kelham Island is seeing exceptional growth with many businesses choosing to base themselves in this part of the city, as well as cultural hot spots and an increasing level of inhabitants choosing to live in this cool part of the city. Sheffield is experiencing a contemporary renaissance of the 'Little Mesters' complexes who flourished during the city's industrial heyday, providing the finishing touches to Sheffield's renowned cuterly and knife blades. The 21st century take on this reflected in the many SME independent businesses calling the Kelham Island area and Sheffield home, all contributing to a vibrant and exciting business output, especially in the creative industries. Sheffield is also renowned as a hub for cycling enthusiasts and attracts many visitors for this reason - it is great to be involved in this unique event in a unique location, as well as reinforcing our standing as 'The Outdoor City' said Lousia Harrison-Walker, Managing Director at Benchmark

KICX is fully support by The Outdoor City campaign heralding Sheffield as the UK's leading city for outdoor adventure and city culture. To find out more information visit the Sheffield Urban Cyclo Cross Wesbite.
