Get fit, have fun, meet people

Next run: Thursday 14 July 2022

About our group

Join Silver Joggers for a fun start to your jogging career.  Trained leaders will help and encourage you to start running and get the amazing health benefits of regular gentle exercise.

Silver Joggers is a friendly group of people who enjoy getting out in the fresh air and exploring Headington and the surrounding areas.  All ages are welcome despite our name!

We have two runs every Thursday morning:

At 09:30 the ‘regulars’ meet and jog for about 5 km.  Please note: as from Thursday 28th April we will have regular and gentle groups - book for 09:30 whichever you want to join.

At 10:30 we welcome beginners or anyone who wants to take things more gently.  We are offering a 'Couch to 5 k' programme to get you active: NEW PROGRAMME starts 28th April.  We will begin with some walking and jogging, building up gradually.  Most of our ‘regulars’ began as ‘beginners’!  You can see what we do on our Facebook Page and Group.

Please register for each run you wish to join - under 'Our Runs'.  Runs are free!  Come along any week to give it a try.

You may also want to look at our sister group  Walking my Way to Running (ladies, Tuesdays 10:00), also in Bury Knowle Park.

Silver Joggers operates under the Oxford and Oxfordshire GO Active programme and is supported by Oxford City Council.
