Just Jog

We offer 10 week 'walk to jog' courses designed to help you progress your fitness at a steady rate, in a fun and social environment. Courses cost £10 and you will receive a free t-shirt at the end of the course.

  • week 1 consists of a moderately paced walk along the city's river accumulating a distance of around 3.5km (2 miles)
  • by week 10 you will be able to jog 5km (3.2 miles) without the need for rest
  • for advanced joggers, our experienced run leaders have a range of ways to keep you challenged

The great thing about this course is, no matter what level you're starting from, you won't get left behind.

New courses will appear here when available. Alternatively, contact Hannah Higginson by email hannah.higginson@york.gov.uk or tel: 01904 553377.
