ABOUT JOGSCOTLAND WESTHILL
jogscotland Westhill has been running since 2002. Originally set up as part of Aberdeenshire Council we became independent at the end of 2016. In February 2017 we voted to become a club under a club constitution. Since going independent we've seen the number of runners increase year on year.
Our club exists to promote jogging and running within the Westhill area. We cater for all levels of runner from beginners to marathoners and all levels in between.
jogscotland is Scotland’s recreational running network, and is part of scottishathletics.
It is made up of hundreds of jogging groups located right across Scotland, meeting in sports centres, community halls, parks and businesses, and jogging on their local paths, pavements and trails. The emphasis at every jogscotland group is on enjoying exercise and supporting one another in a friendly atmosphere. Groups are led by qualified Jog Leaders (mostly volunteers), who guide and inspire their members.
