Jolly Joggers

Now recruiting new complete beginners

Hello! We are the Jollies...all kinds of people old and young and all abilities welcomed! Come and have some fabulous fun in the fresh air. Train with us and achieve your dreams...5k, 10k, half and full marathons...we currently have runners in all of these categories.

We meet every Wed 7pm pronto at the Co-op in Eastington come rain or shine. Check out our busy Facebook page for latest info.

Feeling shy?....don't be!

Feeling fed up with your weight?....don't be!

Feeling unfit and miserable?...please don't be! Come along and join the Jollies!

It's a really good time to start getting fitter and healthier now the evenings are warmer. We have some lovely local routes to show you. Enjoy some gorgeous views and beautiful landscapes along the way.

We look after you at every stage, buddying you up with a group to suit your level of fitness. The group is completely free of charge, but please take care when you run with The Jollies. You are responsible for your own safety when you're out with us. Dogs on a lead are welcomed also.

If you're like me right now, I've done a fair amount of running in the past, but had a year off and need to get back to it. If you are a complete beginner you will find everything here to get you started. If you're a seasoned runner and want company on the dark nights or need access to other running buddies find friends on our Facebook page. If you're new to this running lark, We will start you off briskly walking and will work on aiming to get you to a slow jog. In no time and with regular practice you will find your stamina will build and your mileage will increase.

I will lead the beginners on a 5k route (3.1 miles) to start with which will build to 10k (6.3) in time. Let's take it slow to begin with. This takes approximately 1 hour 15. Join any week but please book your place with me by phoning 07806 802540/01453 828557.

We are a friendly group who are extremely supportive of each other. All you need is a good pair of trainers and bright, comfortable clothing. Pick up the phone and book your session now 07806 802540. We look forward to welcoming you!

Bye for now, Vanessa
