  • You don’t have to be jogging at the moment you just have to be walking regularly.
  • This is an entry level group if you are wanting to learn to jog.
  • We focus on the social and enjoyment aspects of jogging rather than the speed and competitiveness.
  • All ages welcome - its Free!
  • We jog on shared pathways and basic trails around the Stoke area.
  • Our sessions are between 35-45 minutes and are based on walking and jogging.
  • Every Wednesday 5:30pm in spring and summer.
  • In Autumn and winter we will jog in mornings around 10am (if we have the interest, three or more)


No matter how slow you go you are still lapping everybody on the couch.
