Welcome to the Jogscotland Rosemount website

The Rosemount group meets on a Monday & Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm at the Westburn tennis Centre located inside Westburn Park. There are various groups which are suitable from complete beginners all the way through to advanced runners.

Each week we walk/jog/run different routes in the area as well as introducing a variety of training sessions/techniques for example speed and hill work.We also encourage each other to take part in a variety of different events from the Jog Scotland 5K challenges, 10K, Half Marathons and Marathons. 

If you would like to find out more about the group please contact us and we will try our best to answer your questions!

The cost for the group is £2.55 a session. A regular monthly Sport Aberdeen membership also includes access to both sessions at no additional cost. The only other requirement is that you must be a member of jogscotland which is completely free. Forms can be obtained when you attend your first session, or you can do it online on the Jogscotland website, this is the most efficient option.

The jogscotland programme was established in 2002 by scottishathletics, the governing body of athletics in Scotland. Jogscotland uses simple, gentle walk/jog/run programmes to encourage everyone to get out and become more active!

The jogscotland programme is supported by NHS Health Scotland, sportscotland and the Scottish Government Health Department; three national bodies working together to help many people in Scotland adopt a healthier and more active lifestyle.

All our Leaders have attended training courses run by the jogscotland programme. 

Several of our Leaders take other jogscotland groups during the week. These include:-   

  • Tuesday meeting at the Airyhall Community Centre, Countesswells Road at 7.00pm.

Welcome to the many new runners who've joined us. We hope you are enjoying your running.....please remember to register for Jogscotland.....best done online....

We also ask that you register for Parkrun and bring the code along to sessions so we can feedback attendance data to Jogscotland to help them secure funds and develop the network.

As many of you run races for special events and for charity it would be good to share the information with the rest of the group and highlight your fundraising pages! So feel free to post the details in the 'forum'.

Please can you all ensure your emergency contact details and medical information are accurate and updated as necessary. This is very important for your own safety.
