Annual Skyline Walk
This is a challenging walk of approximately 14 miles over varied terrain, starting at Lobden Golf Club between 7.45am and 9am - your choice. It is undertaken entirely at the walker's own risk, and by entering you are accepting that you will stick to the official route. The organisers – Whitworth Sports Council – will provide you with written route instructions; and orange juice/water/plasters if required at every checkpoint; and vehicles may be available to remove you from the moor in the case of emergency. There will also be a certificate and a small hot meal available to you at the finish at Lobden Golf Club. NB Orange juice: can we top up your bottle rather than dish out a cup each time?

Annual New Year's Day Duck Race
Ready, steady – quack! A staple in the Whitworth calendar is the Annual New Year’s Day Duck Race. Taking place, every year at 1pm on New Year's Day at Cowm Reservoir. For those unfamiliar with the concept, numbered ducks sponsored for a pound are entered into the Duck Race, and those who have sponsored the numbers of the first three ducks (and the last one) over the line get a cash prize. The sponsor of the first duck over the line will win £150, with second and third prizes of £125 and £100 respectively, and £25 for the last duck to waddle in. The Duck Race is organised by Whitworth Town Council’s Tourism and Leisure Committee and all proceeds are ploughed back into tourism and leisure events for the town. Last year the duck race raised over a thousand pounds to be used for the Whitworth community.
