Our jog leaders are the lifeblood of jogscotland. Our army of fully-trained, enthusiastic and patient jog leaders have inspired thousands of people across the country to embrace a healthier and more active lifestyle through running.
If you have bags of energy and enthusiasm, and want to help make a difference to the health of the nation then we need you! To become a jog leader you will need to attend a one-day training course which covers everything you need to know, from the warm up to the cool down. Courses are held regularly across the country, and the fee is £130. Jog leader training includes mandatory requirements in safeguarding and first aid.
