About the event
What is it?
A 5km run over 3 laps around Whitworth Park, Darley Dale, Matlock. It is £1 to register for the first time, to help with the minimal costs we have, and then every other race after is free.
When is it?
Our regular timed Thread takes place on the 2nd Saturday of each month starting at 9.00am. There's nothing to stop people running a ‘Loose Thread’ – basically the Thread without the officiating.
Can I just turn up and Run?
Yes, however......... the Thread is run by volunteers and to help our admin please try to register in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and date of birth for all runners.
You can register on the day but please come early from 8:30ish as pre-race can be quite busy. It is £1 to register for the first time, to help with the minimal costs we have, and then every other race after is free.
If you RSVP to The Whitworth's website, your details will be shared with The Whitworth Thread.
Who is it for?
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.
