Aberdeen AAC has a jogscotland group which currently meets one evening weekly outside Aberdeen Sports Village. The recreational group is beginner-friendly and welcoming to all adults, utilising a beginner to novice jogging programme to provide social interaction and enable physical and mental wellbeing. For 2022 we plan to expand the service, delivering 4 blocks of 10 sessions. The grant will also fund an advanced qualification for our current leader and a qualification for an additional leader, shirts for our joggers to create a group identity and reflective vests and headlamps for visibility on the darker evenings.
