Jogging was extremely popular during the 1970s and 1980s, and is one of the primary reasons for the prevalence of chronic knee and ankle problems among UK pensioners.

Although largely superseded by other forms of exercise such as Pilates, vuvuzela and fracking, small enclaves of joggers can still be found in the West Midlands, Thetford Forest and Poundbury, the capital of the independent state of Nostalgia.

Many people now combine jogging with other activities, such as picking up litter (known as plogging), folk dancing (clogging), exercising pets (dogging), drinking rum (grogging), singing Reg Presley songs (trogging), using a sledge (tabogganogging) and dressing as Oliver Postgate (nogginogging).

Ffestiniogging (jogging up a mountain railway) is the only form of jogging benefitting from EU protected designation of origin.
