Jogger's Journey

Meet our winners!

Our lucky winners revealed

Learn more about our 25 Jogger’s Journey winners and join us as we follow their training journey from now to October when they compete in the London Marathon!

Places Leisure is celebrating the dedication and determination it takes to train for a marathon with our inaugural, Jogger’s Journey. We’ve given away 25 free, 12-month, Premium Plus memberships at our leisure centres across the country. We’ve also included free training support sessions with a fitness trainer, and a free starter kit to kick off your journey! We want to give our winners the best possible opportunity to cross that finish line in October!

Our winners were selected by a panel of Places Leisure judges, based on their reason for running – whether they’re running for health reasons or to raise money for a charity near and dear to them. Each of our winners has a compelling story for why they’re running this year’s marathon – so, follow along with us as they share their story with us and we share it with you. Let’s cheer them on and help them to cross the finish line!

Keep checking back as we reveal more of our lucky Jogger's Journey winners.
