Record New Year Jog

2012jogThe  2012 New Year Jog in Lenzie broke all previous records for numbers taking part by about a third.  There were 308 entrants split between the short route, the 4.5k route and the two-lap 9k run.  The weather was judged to be a significant factor.  It was certainly very cold and slightly damp at times, but there was no snow and ice.  This was a welcome relief to the organisers, as 2010 Jog was cancelled due to ice on the track and 2011 only went ahead with a route curtailment and after sterling work with shovels and salt on part of it.

The event was, as always, a combined effort of Kirkintilloch Olympians running club and Lenzie Community Council.  There were many more ‘teams’ this year from as far away as Kilmarnock among other places and Lenzie Rugby Club was also represented.

If you were a runner and want to know your time, look in the Kirkintilloch Herald next week.
