Local, fun & sociable, leader-led walking, jogging & running groups.
Our network of jogging groups, based all over Derbyshire, can help you get fitter & be more active by starting to jog regularly. Qualified Jog Derbyshire Leaders guide beginners & returning runners through specially designed, gentle walking & jogging programmes. Have fun & make new friends with people of similar fitness levels.
Jog Derbyshire is once again running its popular Jog Into January campaign to encourage people who are inactive to take the first steps towards getting fitter by starting jogging. From January 12th our qualified Jog Leaders will be running eight week jog/walk programmes across Derbyshire. Our training plans are specially designed for complete beginners.
We are launching a brand new, friendly, non-competitive social media campaign called #MyChallenge to help people take the first steps to getting more active. The idea is simple – post our #MyChallenge e-cards on facebook or twitter, adding a fun, achievable goal for a friend to aim for. We'll share your success stories to inspire others.

We have nearly 80 groups throughout Derbyshire who have helped thousands of people start jogging or return to running.
New groups are starting every month. To find out more please use our online group search.
