Kedleston Trails 5k & 10k – 28th May 2017

We are delighted to announce that Jog Derbyshire’s Kedleston Trails event on 28th May 2017 will be jointly hosted by local mental health charity Derbyshire Mind.

This is the first step in what we hope will be an on-going relationship in which our organisations will work together to help more people improve their mental health through being active.

Many Jog Derbyshire participants and leaders are already aware of the mental health benefits of getting out for a jog/run with other people; a subject which has seen some great coverage in the media recently thanks to the Royals and their Heads Together campaign focused on the London Marathon.

So, with Derbyshire Mind currently seeking to expand their existing ‘Enjoying Derbyshire’ walking project into other activities, this is a great opportunity that we believe will further build on the success of the Kedleston Trails event.

On the day the Derbyshire Mind team will work with some of our existing volunteers in organising things, and will participate in the event. They will also be on hand to answer questions and discuss ideas.

The format of the event will not change, other than the 5k distance will be open to walkers as well as joggers/runners.

As previous participants know, the aim is to provide a fun, friendly event in spectacular surroundings. It is non-competitive and is not timed, so you can enjoy a run/jog/walk at a pace that suits you. It’s a great opportunity to socialist and get to know other participants or, if you prefer, just enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
