Hollingworth Lake 5K Series Race 2

Stunning setting and fast, flat running!

Many of us may have enjoyed a stroll round the scenic lake with a family or friend and enjoyed the flat surfaces, easy walking and views it offers. So when it came to hosting a 5k with a memorable route I looked no further than Hollingworth Lake. Runnable for all ability levels. Fast, flat, scenic and electronically timed 5k. UKA licence pending and Course Measurement distance certified race.

New Hollingworth Lake 5k Series! Due to the success of the Hollingworth Lake 5k as a one off event (usually held on Easter Bank Holiday Monday), we have decided to make this gem of a 5k into a series run weekly on all the Wednesdays of May. There will be the usual individual race prizes but also league prizes.

The league format (like the popular Littleborough 5k and Todmorden Park Series) will use your best 3 races to count. There will be league prizes for the placed finishers, but also our usual prizes for those who show the most improvement across the league.
