The Whitworth Thread

The Whitworth Thread is a monthly 5km running event held in The Whitworth Park on the second Saturday of every month for a 9:00am start.

Founded in 2013 by members of Matlock Athletics Club, the scenic route takes in three laps of the park. The option to do one, two or all three laps is perfect for families, those new to running or recovering from an injury or illness. Buggies and dogs on short leads are welcome too.

More recently volunteers from the Sole Mates community running group, who meet in the park every Tuesday evening at 6.30pm, took over organising the Thread and they are keen for as many people as possible to join in either as participants or volunteers.

It’s £1 to register for the first time and then free to participate ever after. You just turn up and run (or walk!), it really is that simple!
