Jolly Joggers

Jolly Joggers are a couch to 5k beginners running (jogging) group. We aim to get more people active to improve their mental health.

 

This is a friendly, welcoming, supportive group for anyone who is struggling with their mental health right now or in the past including stress, low mood, anxiety or depression or another mental health problem. Along with anyone who wants to improve their mental wellbeing through running/jogging.

More about Jolly Joggers

Over 12 weeks you build up your jogging and running from a walk (no previous experience necessary) and celebrate week 12 by joining Wolverhampton parkrun which is a weekly 5k (3.1 miles) run around West Park.

At the end of the session Jolly Joggers past and present join for tea in the Café (optional) it is a great way to get to know new people and to make new friends. Throughout the term you can take part in a range of activities; past activities have included: Time to Talk Day, Easter Egg Hunt, Treasure Hunt, Mental Health Awareness Week, Halloween themed activities and World Mental Health Day.

Jolly Joggers is led by a small team of volunteers who are qualified as Running and Fitness coaches. The sessions are insured and risk assessed and open to people 18+.

Please note that Jolly Joggers is a 12 week programme, people can join up until the third week of the current programme. If you miss the third week deadline you would need to wait until the start of the next available Jolly Joggers group.

Walking Group

Our walking group is a friendly, welcoming and supportive group of people who all enjoy meeting up once a month for a walk and a chat together, to help improve and manage their mental health and wellbeing.

 

The walks are led each month by our two friendly walk leaders Kirpal and Ade who both have their own experience with mental health.

More on the Black Country Mental Health Walking Group

The location of the walks changes from month to month. Past walks have taken place at Kinver EdgeLeasowes Park and the grounds surrounding Wollaston Tennis club.
