A campaign encouraging people to get fitter by taking up jogging starts this month.

From January 12, Jog Derbyshire’s qualified Jog Leaders will be running eight-week jog/walk programmes across the county.

Buxton Joggers Leader Emily Wilson, who ran a Jog into January group in 2014, said: “I love seeing the joggers achieve new goals.

“Going out with a group means you don’t need to worry about planning when and where to go and you have company. It’s free, it’s good for you and it’s fun.”

And Jog Derbyshire Project Manager Cathy Rooney added: “Our groups are especially set-up for people who haven’t been physically active before or want to get back into jogging. Our qualified jog leaders take you gradually through a specially-designed gentle run/walk programme and they’ll stay with you at all times.

“You don’t need to worry about how you look or your speed. It’s about taking the first steps to getting fit and at the same time making new friends and having fun.”
