Dust down those trainers!
jogscotland has been urging the people of Scotland to don their trainers and adopt a healthier and more active lifestyle since 2002. Since then, over 25,000 people have taken up jogging through our local community and workplace groups by using simple, gentle walk/jog/run programmes to encourage everyone to get out and be active.
Established by scottishathletics, the governing body of athletics in Scotland, and supported by NHS Health Scotland, sportscotland and the Scottish Government Health Department, jogscotland is Scotland’s national recreational running network.
Running for the health of it
Exercising regularly boosts energy levels, enhances self esteem and aids long-term weight loss. What’s more, being more active has a host of specific health benefits including reducing the risk of heart disease, certain cancers, strokes, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and osteoporosis.
So what are you waiting for? A slight change in lifestyle can make a big difference to health at any time, regardless of age, fitness level or ability.
