jogscotland Challenges

The jogscotland Challenge Series features events all over the country that are chosen to be particularly welcoming to joggers, not just the preserve of competitive athletes. They offer a variety of locations, routes, and distances, from Highland trails to urban pavements.

Whichever event you choose to take part in, the one thing you can be sure of, is that if it’s a jogscotland Challenge Series event, you’ll receive a warm welcome, whether you’re new to jogging, or an experienced runner. Whatever your experience, speed, goals, age, shape or size, you’ll feel at home and get a real sense of achievement from taking part in the jogscotland Challenge events.

We’re delighted to have a new jogscotland Challenge event in the series this year, as we welcome Glasgow Frontrunners’ OUTRun – the flagship event for one of Scotland’s biggest LGBT+ sports clubs is welcoming to absolutely everyone, and we’re delighted to promote it to the wider running community.
