JOGGERS will finally come under starter’s orders next weekend for a popular community event.

The annual Knutsford Jog around The Moor is staged by The Rotary Club of Knutsford, and raises money for a charity and other good causes supported by the club.

About 200 runners were due to take part in the event on Sunday, March 18, but it was called off because of heavy snow and freezing temperatures.

However the organisers decided to reschedule the event, and asked runners to keep their Jog numbers.

As a result it’s now time to dig out your trainers for Sunday, April 29.

This year’s jog is supporting The Joshua Tree. Last year’s jog raised about £8,000 and attracted about 300 children and adults. The event is supported by the Knutsford Guardian.

The jog includes The Mayor’s Charities Event, which is supporting The Friendship Café, Mid Cheshire Riding for the Disabled and Knutsford Youth Orchestra.

The jog around the Moor in Knutsford opens at 9.30am, with the jog starting at 10.30am and ending at 11.30am.

“It’s a very popular event as well as a major fundraiser for us, and we try and make it as fun as possible,” said Ken Jones, the club’s publicity officer.

“Those taking part are sponsored for each lap of the Moor they complete, and we have jog gates they go through so we can record the number of laps.

“At the event everyone receives a certificate and a badge.”

Application forms are available from the leisure centre or

Ken added: “If you cannot participate please send us a donation to this very worthy local charity, which is supported by your local Knutsford Guardian.”
