Get fit, have fun, meet people

Next run: Thursday 29 July 2021

About our group

On Thursday 15th July at 10:30 we start a new Couch to 5 km programme.  You can join us any week, but if you are new to jogging, this would be a very good time to give it a go.

When you first run with us please  complete the on-line health questionnaire at  Your responses will go to Oxford City Council.  You only need to do this once, but please do it even if you once filled in a similar card.  Then please register for each run you wish to join - under 'Our Runs'.  Runs are free!

Join the Silver Joggers for a fun start to your jogging career.  Trained leaders to 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

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.  We will cover 2 – 2.5 miles at a gentle pace with some walking, building up gradually.  Most of our ‘regulars’ began as ‘beginners’!

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.
