We love bringing people together from across Jog Derbyshire for a good event. As part of Peak Running, Jog Derbyshire members also benefit from exclusive access and offers on a variety of other exciting events. Find out what's coming up below.
Jog Derbyshire/Peak Running
Thanks to a Forest Society Grant from the National Forest, Peak Running is running a series of free Trail Therapy sessions in the area. The sessions are all about benefitting from being outdoors in nature and the mental health boost this brings. You can choose from a running or walking option on most dates and there's no such thing as being too slow. The pace will always be relaxed with a focus on chatting and socialising, with plenty of stops for a breather and photos.
Regular sessions are available until October 2023. View the locations and book your free place below.
November, December and January
Love doing things as a team? Bored of the same old events? You won't be disappointed by the Starlight Relays.
Embark on an atmospheric 2-mile journey in the dark, where your path will be illuminated by a sea of lights as runners weave their way along the trails and through the trees. Tag your team-mate and pass on the baton to continue the relay and cheer on the rest of your team from the side-lines.
There are three events in this series, sign up for one or go for a hat-trick and sample every one.

Elvaston Castle Country Park
We're delighted to be supporting Derbyshire Mind with Mental Elf - a family friendly festive fun run raising much needed funds for this wonderful charity.
The circular 5k route in the beautiful grounds of Elvaston Castle is perfect for all ages and abilities, whether you want to run or walk.
Dogs are warmly welcomed and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Grab your best festive outfits to be the best of the best for competitions including best dressed pet and best dressed elf. Entry includes a medal and goody bag.
Run for the Trees
Join Peak Running for a month long challenge, designed to get you out and about during an often dreary February. Choose to complete 50, 100 or 200 miles over the month - walking or running - and you'll receive free access to virtual races and guided runs to help boost your miles. But the best thing is your entry will be supporting the National Forest - for every 200 miles completed, Peak Running will plant a tree and you'll receive a beautiful wooden award if you reach your target.
Jog Derbyshire group members benefit from a 15% discount. Contact your group leader for the code.
24th March 2024
The Derby 10k is one of our favourite events in the calendar because it's where we bring hundreds of Jog Derbyshire members together in one room, which makes for one amazing atmosphere. If you're part of a Jog Derbyshire group you get a discount on race entry and access to the Jog Derbyshire room pre and post race with dedicated bag drop and clean, queue-less toilets.
Your jog leader will coordinate access to this nearer the time so have a chat with them if you've got any questions or drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Kedleston Hall Tinsel Trail
Jog Derbyshire/Peak Running
18th December 2022 (past)
Hunt out your Santa hats and dust off the tinsel for the festive delight that is the Kedleston Hall Tinsel Trail. Choose from a beautiful 5k or 10k route around the stunning grounds of the National Trust's Kedleston Hall. This informal, social and non-timed event is suitable for all ages and abilities and can be walked or jogged. Unfortunately - due to circumstances beyond our control - we're unable to hold this event in 2023. Come and join us at the Derbyshire Mind Mental Elf run instead!
