About Event

The Women's and Girls' Jogalong in Canberra is held by the YMCA of Canberra Runners on the first Sunday every month, with this month's event on Sunday, 1 October 2017. There are 6km, 3km mixed event (boys under 13) and 1.6km Mini-Jog (boys and girls under 13) options. This event is free to YMCA members and there is a fee for non-members.

 The Jogalong is all about participation and enjoyment. It aims to encourage women and girls to get out and get active by providing a physical challenge in a friendly social environment and a regular opportunity to improve on your own personal best. A handicap system is used for the event so if you are new, report to the registration table before the event begins. Our club volunteers there will help you to establish a handicap group which you will start in.

Our aim is that you should feel a sense of achievement at the end and want to return as a regular participant. This gives you the motivation to train each week so that each month at the Jogalong you can work to improve your personal performance. The only pressure to perform is from you!
