JOG NORTHANTS OFFERS SEPTEMBER SOLUTION TO GET ACTIVE!

 

Jog Northants announces 12 new Beginners Jogging Groups starting across the county in September. 

Northamptonshire Sport’s ‘Jog Northants’ programme announces 12 new beginners jogging groups and 4 improvers groups to start throughout the county in September, adding to the tally of jogging groups countywide, all helping beginners to start jogging regularly using a gradual progression programme. The Improvers groups are ideal if you can already run 5km, and just want that extra push to help you improve. 

All the groups start with a mixture of walking and jogging and are ideal for anyone that has never run before. The groups meet all requirements; whether you 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. 

The groups are all part of ‘Jog Northants’ - Northamptonshire’s recreational running programme which has encouraged over 4400 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”. 

10 new groups for complete beginners will be starting in January in Northampton, Kettering, Wellingborough, Rushden and Corby, are listed below:
