Stepping up fitness opportunities in the Dales this year

editorial image

Weeks after being named one of the most active places in England, the Derbyshire Dales is stepping up its fitness campaign.

A new Walk, Jog, Run group is launched in Matlock by Derbyshire Dales District Council today led by a qualified jog leader.

Designed as a workplace jogging group, but open to everyone – particularly beginners – the group meets for the first time near the Hall Leys Park tennis courts at 5pm.

Part of the Jog Derbyshire ‘Jog into January’ programme, it’s an eight–week course with a target for participants of being able to jog for two miles at the end of it.

Councillor Jennifer Bower, Chairman of the community committee, said: “I really would encourage local people to give this a try.

“To start with, we’re only looking at an easy warm up followed by a mix of walking and gentle jogging, then a warm down. A homework session each week will help those taking part to build up their fitness.”
