This master thesis aims to create a deeper
understanding of the conditions for jogging in the
everyday landscape. It examines the structures that
may support it, and how they can be created.

Through a literature study, I examine what research
says about the importance of urban planning in
promoting jogging, as well as what supportive
structures for jogging in the everyday landscape
consist of. The conclusions of the literature are
applied practically through analysis in the studied
everyday landscape, Flemingsberg. Based on the
literature study’s conclusions and the analysis results,
I develop demands and thresholds for jogging which
exemplifies a possible approach to achieve a deeper
understanding of the landscape of jogging. Finally,
I give a suggestion on how jogging, from a public
health perspective, can be promoted in Flemingsberg.

The study shows that supportive structures for
jogging, such as jogging trails and exercise facilities,
are important elements of the landscape of jogging,
but should only be considered as a part of it. Since
jogging often starts right at the front door the everyday
landscape should be seen as its whole. In urban
planning movement is usually seen as a functional
form of displacement. To reach a holistic perspective
and a deeper understanding of the landscape of
jogging the activity needs to be treated as a mobility,
where the experience of the movement is central.

Physical activity in public space reflects societal
norms and structures. A deeper understanding of the
various needs and preferences for jogging require
that specific audiences are defines and included in the
planning of the everyday landscape. It also requires
that public health research theory is translated into
concrete requirements and thresholds of what is
sufficient and necessary to promote physical activity
and jogging. If these concrete requirements are
then practically applied within urban planning, an
understanding of the supportive structures for jogging
in the everyday landscape can be fully reached.


Det här är ett examensarbete inom
Landskapsarkitekturprogrammet vid SLU, Alnarp.
Det syftar till att skapa en djupare förståelse för
motionslöpningens förutsättningar i vardagslandskapet
samt att undersöka vilka strukturer som kan verka
stödjande för det, och hur de kan skapas.
