The Whitworth Thread 5K



All ages

  • 5 km road running


The regular timed Thread takes place on the 2nd Saturday of each month. There’s nothing to stop people running a ‘Loose Thread’ – basically the Thread without the officiating. You only need to register once and then you can turn up and run every other time! New runners can register on the day with your full name, email, date of birth and £1. Please come earlier to register. At each official monthly run we collect £1 voluntary donation for charity. Everybody! Whether you’re a regular runner or always wanted to get that little bit fitter these events are for everyone, just turn up and enjoy yourself. You can jog all 3 laps, or choose to do less (2 or 1 lap) and even walk the route as that first step towards improving your fitness and general well-being. Our oldest runner so far is over 80 years of age with our youngest being a 3 year old toddling around with her dad! You’ll be caught up with the enthusiasm of others and the atmosphere within the park – so much easier than running alone. The run is entirely within the Whitworth Park consists of three 1 mile laps. The route is tarmac with short downhill and uphill sections and “threads” it’s way around the park. Marshals are dotted at various points to help direct you. There’s no obligation to run the whole of the route – set your own targets and try your best.
