Welcome to the Jogscotland WFT website
The WFT group meets on a Monday evening at 6.30pm at the Beach Leisure Centre located at the Beach. There are various groups which are suitable from complete beginners all the way through to advanced runners.
Each week we walk/jog/run different routes in the area as well as introducing a variety of training sessions/techniques for example speed and hill work.We also encourage each other to take part in a variety of different events from the jogscotland 5K challenges, 10K, Half Marathons and Marathons.
If you would like to find out more about the group please contact us and we will try our best to answer your questions!
The cost for the group is £18 for a 10 week block or alternatively you can pay as you go at a cost of just £2.50. There is also a 10 week block two group rate of £28. (Currently this option includes WFT at Beach Leisure Centre on Mondays & Rosemount on Wednesdays).
The only other requirements of becoming a member of the group is that you must be a member of jogscotlandwhich is completely free and forms can be obtained when you attend your first session.
The jogscotland programme was established in 2002 by scottishathletics, the governing body of athletics in Scotland. jogscotland uses simple, gentle walk/jog/run programmes to encourage everyone to get out and become more active!
The jogscotland programme is supported by NHS Health Scotland, sportscotland and the Scottish Government Health Department; three national bodies working together to help many people in Scotland adopt a healthier and more active lifestyle.
