People Spotted Out On Morning Jog At Glastonbury Festival

People Spotted Out On Morning Jog At Glastonbury Festival

People have been spotted out for a morning jog at Glastonbury Festival, with footage of the unexpected scenes prompting a debate on social media. Watch the clip here: 


No doubt many people have marked the first Glastonbury since 2019 by really leaning into the festival experience, which inevitably involves waking up in a sweaty tent with a hangover from hell, letting out a few pained groans before cracking open a tinny and doing it all over again. 

But it seems some festivalgoers have been starting their day feeling a little fresher, having decided to attack the day by getting outside for a run. 


After seeing a group of joggers out doing their thing, one person tweeted: “There are people out for their morning jog. At GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL. Jogging. At a festival. They’re not high, late, lost, running away from invisible monsters. They. Are. Jogging. At f**king Glastonbury. #Glastonbury #Glastonbury2022."

Replying in the comments, another even shared footage of the folk they’d seen on a run, writing: “Wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes.”

The news triggered something of a debate online, with some people in sheer disbelief that anyone would go to festival and actually exercise, while others defended the scenes as a good way to shake off the effects of the night before. 


One wrote: “Reports of people at Glasto getting up for a morning jog… genuinely. I’m sorry but if you’re at a festival and you’re waking up for a jog and not a warm can of cider you’re doing it wrong. A bloody jog.” 

Someone else commented: “Even if you were really, really into jogging, surely the lack of showers would make skipping a few days the more sensible (and sociable) choice. #notinmyday.” 

A third said: “World has changed, a lot of the young people I work with now hardly go out, are always at the gym and even order water on nights out.” 


On the other hand, many people saw a morning run as a ‘good way to shake off a hangover’, saying it was actually a ‘great idea’ if you’re into that sort of thing. 

One Twitter user said: “Fair play to them. Will feel fresh and set up for the whole day. Great idea.” 

Another wrote: “It’s a great idea! Have a short-ish jog. Sweat out the toxins, refresh the body again for a few bevvies later…” 

A third added: “Just seen a screen grab on Facebook of someone having a whinge that people are going for a morning jog at glasto. WHO F**KING CARES. LET PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY WANT TO FEEL GOOD. STOP THE F**KING TWISTY DOUBLE STANDARD HATE AND JUST LEAVE EVERYONE TO LIVE AND DIE HOWEVER THEY WANT.” 


That said, one person did point out that there probably wasn’t much point in a morning run, as ‘you’ll walk 10 miles a day anyway’.

As someone whose feet are currently on fire after the five million steps I did traipsing between stages yesterday, I have to admit I’m inclined to agree.
