Event Description

Whit’th Whippets present

Cowm Reservoir 5k Race

(ARC Rules. Permit No ARC 22/281

7pm Tuesday 26 April 2022

from the Cock & Magpie Pub, Cockhall Lane,
Whitworth, Rochdale OL12 8BJ


We’re looking forward to welcoming runners on Tuesday 26 April at 7pm for the first 5k race at Cowm Reservoir in 2022. Money raised from this event will go to 'New Start - Wythenshawe Hospital Transplant Fund'.



Come dressed ready to run as there are no changing facilities at the event. Parking is limited so we advise you to arrive early, and park on Cowm Park Way South (OL12 8AH).  


Registration is at the Cock & Magpie pub on Cockhall Lane, OL12 8BJ from 6pm. Toilets are also available.  


Please arrive in good time to register and collect your race number. The start is a short walk from the pub but we advise you do not arrive any later than 6.30pm. 


All runners must pre-register in advance through BookitZone. We are unable to accept money or entries on the night. 



The route 

The race will be the original Cowm 5k route with the same start and finish location. You will run up the lane, turn left then straight up to the reservoir and through the gate to do two anti-clockwise laps. Marshals will be present throughout the course to direct you. 




Once you have crossed the line, please keep your distance from those still running down the lane. 


Free sandwiches will be available in the pub afterwards, but you'll need to bring your own money to purchase drinks. There is a large beer garden at the rear where prizes will be presented at around 8pm for first, second and third places plus best in age categories. 


If you have any questions, please contact us on 07894 197948 or email  


A big thank you to United Utilities for permission to use the reservoir. 

Have a great race!
