Are You Part Of The 100 Club?
jogscotland's Big 100 week has arrived, are you taking part?
After months of build-up – and for some Jog Scotties, many weeks of running – it’s time to celebrate everyone's achievements in jogscotland's Big 100 Virtual event!
The Big 100 celebrates the 100th anniversary of jogscotland's partners, SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health). To earn one of the fabulous medals, you just have to set yourself any challenge involving the number 100, and enter online.
Among the first to finish their challenge were pals Yvonne O’Malley of jogscotland Penicuik and Jane Malcolm of Stirling Striders (pictured). Yvonne and Jane ran an incredible 100 miles together over the course of one month, and took 100 photographs along the way, accompanied by Ron the bear, and Isa the sheep for company! They finished with a trail run in Keswick at the weekend, and were proud to show off their medals.
There are still plenty of challenges to be completed, both by groups and individual runners. Killie Striders are aiming to gather 100 joggers to complete a total of 100 miles and eat 100 cakes while Mums on the Run Hyndland took on a group challenge to cover 100K in one week, and smashed their goal!
Individual joggers and pairs of jogging buddies are also getting in on the action. Anne Wood and Liz Pirie aimed to run down 100 different streets in Aberdeen – and in fact completed 105 while Matthew Allan will run for 100 minutes spread over several runs.
As well as raising awareness of the important work of SAMH, proceeds from the Challenge will go towards jogscotland’s ongoing work to support Scotland’s mental and physical health through getting active.
