20th Birthday Virtual 5K

The jogscotland 20th Birthday Virtual 5K is now sold out – THANK YOU to everyone who has signed up to take part! Don’t forget to share your photos with us on social media – we hope you enjoy the 5K and the medal!


This year marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of jogscotland. We’re delighted to celebrate with a very special 20th Birthday Virtual 5K – complete with specially-designed limited edition celebration medal – and we’d love you to take part!

Over two decades, jogscotland has grown from a handful of pilot groups to more than 300 groups and 500 weekly jogs, all over the country. It’s you, our members, who have made jogscotland such an incredible success – and now we want you to be the ones to help us celebrate with our Virtual 5K!

Just register online, then walk, jog, run or push the 5K in your own time, solo or with your jogging group pals, friends or family. When you’ve completed it, share a picture of your efforts on social media with the hashtag #jogscotland20 and tag our twitter, or Instagram accounts. You can post a selfie from your run, or if you prefer, a picture from your running app or GPS tracker! We’d particularly encourage jogscotland groups to take part together during the month of July, when we’ll be making sure to share your photos on our social channels.

The medals are limited-edition and designed to feel like a birthday party in a medal, so once you’ve completed your 5K and received your medal, we’d love to see a photo of you wearing it too.

You don’t have to be a jogscotland member to take part – it’s open to everyone, so fetch your pals and get jogging!

Medals will be posted out from 8 July onwards. If you can’t complete the 5K right away, that’s OK – we know life sometimes gets in the way, and we trust you! The support you’ve shown jogscotland means a lot to us, so you will be sent your medal even if you don’t complete the challenge right away – but don’t forget to do it! If you’re taking part as a group, you can choose to sign up in a group of five or ten, and your medals will all be sent together to the group leader to distribute.

The entry fee is £12 and all money raised will be ploughed back into jogscotland‘s work, helping more people improve their physical and mental health by getting active, and supporting the jog leaders who make it all happen. Entries may remain open beyond July but only as long as we have medals available, so we encourage you to sign up quickly.

We can’t wait to hear about your 5Ks and see your pictures!
