As Covid restrictions begin to ease and jogscotland gradually returns to group running, we’re delighted to be able to relaunch our Keep on Running campaign.
With so many people taking up, or returning to, running during lockdown, we’re keen for them to find their local jogscotland group or athletics club, and enjoy the benefits of running in a group. However, we also know that some groups and clubs are initially concentrating on sessions for existing members. The Keep on Running campaign page linked above lists clubs and groups that are currently able to welcome new members, to either in-person, or virtual sessions. This makes it easier for potential new members to find their running home in these early stages of the emergence from lockdown, and gives groups and clubs on the page the benefit of a little extra publicity from our campaign posts.
Groups and clubs taking part can use our Keep on Running resources to promote their club, including social media graphics, promotional posts, template press releases, and more.
The initial phase of the campaign ran as we emerged from lockdown last year, attracting support all the way from the 70 grassroots clubs and groups, which opened the doors to new members, to stars like Laura Muir, who gave Keep on Running her backing:
With groups and clubs now returning to group activity once again, we’re delighted to relaunch the Keep on Running campaign, to keep the momentum going and support all those on the ground working hard to ensure a vibrant return for our sport.
Woooohooo! Our all abilities road running group will return next week! We’ll be kicking things off on Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm. We can’t wait to see you all again! 🙌🏻 🔵⚪️🟢 #vproadrunners #jogscotland #glasgow #keeponrunning pic.twitter.com/lgKoN9P4j0
