LAUREN ROBERTS PALMERSTON YOUTH Jogging picks up fast pace TERRITORIANS are pounding the pavement more than ever before, with new research showing jogging has taken off as a pastime across the nation. Findings from Roy Morgan Research have revealed almost a quarter of Australians aged over 14 go jogging either occasionally or regularly a 66 per cent increase on participation a decade ago. In the 12 months to March 2006, 14 per cent of Aussies reported that they went jogging on a regular or occasional basis. As of March 2016, the participation rate had skyrocketed to 23.2 per cent, making jogging the fastest-growing sport or exercise in the country over the past 10 years, ahead of hiking, bushwalking, cycling and yoga. This boom in jogging participation is evident among men and women of all age groups. Mens overall participation has increased by almost 50 per cent from 16.4 per cent to 24.2 per cent, while the proportion of total women joggers has almost doubled from 11.6 per cent to 22.2 per cent. Roy Morgan Researchs Norman Morris said Australia has been in the midst of a jogging boom over the past decade, driven in no small part by a surge in womens participation. Meanwhile, the rise of fitness apps, trackers and the like has made it much easier for joggers to gauge their progress and quantify the benefits of their hard work, he said. As far as sports go, jogging can be a fairly low-cost activity. But for more committed participants, it can involve considerable outlay: after all ... running shoes and fitness bands dont come cheap. As far as sports go, jogging can be a fairly low cost activity The fresh approach to cafe eating Hungry Hearts Cafe has opened up shop in Tivendale and is serving fresh, homemade breakfast and lunch seven days a week.
