Nuffield Health jogscotland 5k series starts this week
04 / 06 / 2012
The Nuffield Health jogscotland Challenges are almost upon us with Aberdeen on Wednesday night marking the start of a great series of races. June features seven races at six venues across Scotland with Peebles added to our map this year.
Nigel Holl, the Chief Executive of scottishathletics and jogscotland, will be on hand at Hazlehead Park to mark the start of Nuffield Health’s backing for these annual events over 5k.
In a message to all jogscotland members, Nigel said: ‘I hope you are looking forward to Aberdeen as much as I am!
‘The first of the Nuffield Health jogscotland Challenges is nearly here and I will be joining everyone in Aberdeen this midweek to kick this series off in great style.
‘Live music as you run . . . it beats having your MP3 player plugged into your ears, so make sure you are ready!
‘Our fantastic partners and sponsors at Nuffield Health have so much to offer walkers, joggers, runners, athletes at all levels, and the challenges will be a great opportunity to find out more about how they might be able to help you.
‘There will also be the usual great opportunities from some of our other partners such as Run4It – have you seen their promotion currently going on for the month of June? If you haven’t, have a look at their website – don't miss out!
‘There are still opportunities for runners of all standards to sign up for the other Challenges – Inverness on 13 June / Peebles on 19 June / Glasgow on 20 June / Dundee on the 26 June, and then the big finale in Edinburgh on 27 June.
‘I hope to see as many of you there as possible.’
