Become a jogscotland jog leader!

Thursday 17 June 2021

Could you inspire others to get active, by becoming a jogscotland jog leader?

Our Leadership in Running Fitness (LiRF) course will qualify you to set up a jogscotland group of your own, or to become a leader with an existing group. The course takes place via blended learning, with four online modules and a half day in-person practical session.

You don’t have to be a fast runner – some of the best jog leaders are people who can remember what it’s like to be a beginner! The most important thing is to have a passion for sharing the joy of running, and celebrating achievement at all levels.

We have now opened booking for six courses later this year, with practical sessions as follows:

Inverness  – 19 September 2021
Livingston – 26 September 2021
Dundee – 2 October 2021
Glasgow – 17 October 2021
Grangemouth – 6 November 2021
Aberdeen – 13 November 2021

Once you have passed the course:

  • You will be able to set up your own jogging group, using the jogscotland name if you wish.
  • Your group will be advertised on our Group Finder.
  • Your sessions will be covered by our insurance.
  • You can contact our team at jogscotland HQ any time for help and advice.
  • You will have access to the jogscotland jog leader group on facebook, where you can receive advice, support and friendship from other leaders.
  • You will receive access to useful online resources.
