Jog Northants Provides a Solution to Your New Years Resolution!!

Once again our 'Jog Northants' programme will offering a number of new beginners jogging groups across the county in January. Anyone who is new to jogging, or has not run for a long time, can be guided through a progressive programme of gentle walking and jogging all led by a qualified Jog Northants Leader. So whether you just want a little help to get started, want the safety of a group run, train for an event or like the social part of meeting others whilst getting active then one of our Jog Northants groups could be for you!

The groups are all part of 'Jog Northants' - Northamptonshire's recreational running programme which has encouraged over 4500 participants countywide to sign up to the scheme since it started.

Fraser Lodge, Jog Northants Co-ordinator from Northamptonshire Sport said "The success of Jog Northants is due to all the dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers who are excellent at providing encouragement and leading the groups. Without these leaders the programme would not have been able to inspire and encourage so many people to take up running".

"The groups cater for all fitness levels and abilities from the complete beginner and those returning to running to those who fancy running with likeminded people. The camaraderie and social element of the groups is also key as it helps to retain and motivate members".

12 new groups for complete beginners will be starting from the 3rd of January across Northamptonshire. Including specifically in Northampton, Kettering, Wellingborough, Rushden and Corby, are listed below:
