Lenzie Jog, January 2014

The annual Lenzie Jog will be held on Friday, January 2, 2015.

The event starts at 11am from the Kirkintilloch Road end of Cedar Drive in Lenzie.

Runners of all ages and abilities - solo or in groups - are invited to join in this fun event which last year attracted 400 participants.

Registration will be at Lenzie Union Church Old Hall starting at 10am and will cost 50p for children and £1 for adults, to cover refreshments and arrangements on the day.

Races will start promptly at 11am from Cedar Drive, and there are three distances to choose from.

There’s a 2km run for the children and a 4.3km circuit for adults, which can be completed either once or twice, depending on each runner’s stamina and level of fitness.

There will be marshals along the route to ensure safety and fair play for all participants.

Last year the race attracted not only over 400 local runners but also Scottish international runner Beth Twell, and the event has now become a firm fixture in the nation’s running calendar.
