When is it: Every 2nd Saturday in each month at 9.00am
Where is it: The Whitworth Park – meet at the terrace café (toilets available)
Who is it for:Anyone!!! - we had our oldest competitor so far in September at 78 years and a 3 year old toddling around with her dad!!
These events are for everyone. Just turn up and enjoy yourself. Whether your a regular runner or always wanted to get that little bit fitter. You can jog 4 laps, 3,2 or 1 lap and even walk the route as that first step towards improving your fitness and general well-being. Month by month you set your own target and try to improve it.
You'll be caught up with the enthusiasm of others and the atmosphere within the park - so much easier than running alone.
What do I need:Running shoes and a £1 donation for charity.
Our run is entirely within the Whitworth Park and based around a 4 lap course. The route is pure tarmac, with short downhill and uphill sections making the most of the criss-cross network of pathways for you to "thread" your way around. Marshals are dotted at various points leaving you free to concentrate and enjoy your run. There's no obligation to run the whole of the route - set your own targets and try your best.
For afterwards, the Whitworth Terrace Cafe provides the welcome reward of a coffee or soft drinks along with that well deserved breakfast or snack
