Jog Northants is a countywide programme aimed at helping beginners start jogging. We are proud to offer many jogging groups throughout Northamptonshire to help those who are new to running, or have not exercised in a long time.

All the groups start with a mixture of walking and jogging and are a great way to get fit without having to spend a lot of money. All the groups are led by qualified and insured leaders who organise the route, meeting place and offer help and guidance to help you achieve your goals.

Do you want to become a Jog Group Leader?

If you are thinking of starting your own, or assisting with a current jogging group - why not have a look into one of the following courses:

Assistant Jog Leaders Course

The Assistant Jog Leaders course is ideal for anyone who is taking their first steps into assistant with a current group. As current groups are expanding and strengthening, there is more need for assistant leaders to help with the general management of the groups, admin, warm-ups and behind the scenes support such as social media.

The Assistant Leaders course is a 3 hour online live workshop which will equip you with the confidence and knowledge to be able to assist with your current group. This is not a pre-requisite of the Leadership in Running Fitness Course but most people have found it useful in giving them confidence to go on and complete the Leadership in Running Fitness course afterwards.

The workshop is just £10, don't worry if you don't already run with a current group and would like to attend the course, we can help you find a group to support. The next online course will take place on Tuesday 16th March, 6:00pm - 9:00pm. Click here to book: Assistant Jog Leaders Course | Northamptonshire Sport

Leadership in Running Fitness Course (LiRF)

This is a one day nationally recognised course accredited by UK Athletics.

The course will cover session ideas, training plans, and injuries and will qualify and insure you as a leader to lead your own jogging group. By the end of the course you will be issued with a leader ID card and will confidently be able to deliver fun and safe sessions to groups of various abilities. After this course, we will help you set your own group up on a day and time that suits you.

Coach in Running Fitness Course (CiRF)

This course is for coaches who are primarily working with runners up to and including event group development stage. To attend this course, applicants must have completed the LiRF. There are four contact days, but attendees will also be required to engage in pre-course work, supported practice and assessment preparation. CiRF has a broad application to non track based endurance running rather than specific events or distances. After the course you will be qualified and insured to plan a progressive training programme to help runners towards their specific goals.
