JOG Derbyshire

Jog Derbyshire groups are friendly and help support beginners or those getting back into the groove.

Go at your own pace and make new friends

JOG Derbyshire is a countywide project which aims to encourage people to become fitter and be more active by starting to jog on a regular basis with people of similar fitness levels.

Anyone who is new to jogging, or has not run for a long time, can be guided through a series of gentle walking and jogging programmes led by a qualified Jog Derbyshire Leader.

The emphasis is on having fun and making new friends with people of similar fitness levels.
