What is Joggling?

Joggling combines running and juggling. Joggling requires the competitor to juggle at least 3 balls while running. The rules require that a juggling pattern must be maintained whilst running, and if an object is dropped, the joggler must return to the point where the object fell and continue from there.

Benefits of Joggling

Joggling is a full mind body workout encompassing all four limbs. It is one of the best exercises anyone can do as it provides a full body workout plus it helps to sharpen the mind.


The World Joggling Championships are open for anyone to compete. Competitors need to be able to juggle 3 balls proficiently.

Governing Body

The World Juggling Championships are operated under the auspices of the International Jugglers’ Association (IJA). The championships are being held as part of the week long IJA Festival. The IJA Festival brings together many of the best jugglers from around the world for a week of competitions, workshops and shows.

The 2013 IJA World Joggling Championships witnessed three world records. Eric Walter blasted the 23 year old 400 meter 3 ball record set by Owen Morse in 1990 at 57.3 seconds. Walter ran an incredible 1.5 seconds faster in 55.8 as he destroyed the field finishing 13 seconds ahead of the second place finisher.

Newcomer Gabrielle Foran established herself as one of the greatest female jogglers in history winning three events and setting a world record in the 1600 meter 3 ball as the first women to break the 6 minute barrier.

Former IJA Stage Champion Thomas Dietz took up joggling for the first time this year and came away with gold medals in both the 100 meter 5 ball and 100 meter 7 ball. In the latter event, Dietz broke the world record set last year by Jack Denger by over 5 seconds in a time of 53.6.
