Wythenshawe parkrun

Wythenshawe parkrun has been up and running since August 2011 and is attracting more runners each week.

This a two lap course which starts and ends outside the entrance to Wythenshawe Hall which is located in the centre of the park.


The first short section of the run loops around a small area of grass, past the statue of Oliver Cromwell before rejoining the main path. It then follows the main path through the park and along a tree-lined footpath before coming to the football playing fields.

The route keeps to the right of the playing fields, alongside the stream then over a small footbridge, before doubling back along another tree-lined footpath and on to the path towards the main car park and small farm.

After passing the farm the route cuts through a small wooded area before the tea rooms, bringing you back out in front of the Oliver Cromwell Statue again ready for lap two.

Lap two is the same same route as lap one (apart from missing out the first grassy loop). Once back at Oliver Cromwell on the second lap, turn left and finish back at the Hall.

  1. Any event that has "Wythenshawe" in it name must be a good one! What an amazing olde worlde name and it looks an interesting course too Jenny. No wonder your pb for the 5k has shot down so much with such inspiring places to run :)
