Keep on Running

We know how many of you have been getting up and active during lockdown – and we want to help you stay that way! Athletics clubs and jogscotland groups around the country are starting to train together again, and they’d love to help you take your running to the next level – whether that means more fitness and speed, or just more fun and motivation!

Our clubs and groups are full of trained, enthusiastic people who can help you Keep on Running. They are returning from lockdown at their own pace, each resuming group training when they can do it safely, in line with government guidelines. The Keep on Running Campaign highlights clubs and groups that are currently welcoming new members – whether in person or virtually.

Ready to get started? Either jump straight down to our listings to find your new club or group, or read on if you’re not sure whether you’d prefer an athletics club or a jogscotland group.

Athletics club or jogscotland group?

Both offer the chance to enjoy the social side of running, whether that’s competing alongside your club mates or just having a jog and a blether.

People running on a trackAthletics clubs welcome children and adults who want to take part in regular training sessions with qualified coaches, covering track, field or endurance events. Many clubs will deliver programmes for everyone from complete beginners to experienced runners. Members can take part in scottishathletics championships.

jogscotland groups make fitness fun and accessible. Beginners’ groups start you off by jogging for just 30 seconds at a time. Some groups also offer walking for fitness sessions, some have members who are training for marathons or ultras – everyone’s achievements are equally important.
