09/10/2020 Werrington Joggers Virtual Jack Frost Winter Series

Werrington Joggers Virtual Jack Frost Winter series for Junior and Senior members

During the winter months we usually have the opportunity to take part in the Frostbite winter series of  6 x 5 mile races (Seniors) or  6 x 1½ Miles races (Juniors) but sadly the league has had to be cancelled this year due to COVID 19 and the safety issues when racing in a large group.

The idea of a year without Frostbite races seemed really sad to me so I’d like to offer everyone the chance to run in Werrington Joggers very own virtual Jack Frost Winter league series.  You will need to run 5 miles/8km (Seniors) or 1½ miles/2.4km (Juniors) on the Frostbite Sunday, (the second Sunday of each month), and then send me your time. I will be accepting times on trust but may ask for proof if you suddenly start running like Mo Farah!! Equally though I’ll accept screen shots of your Strava or Fetcheveryone entry or Garmin or Fitbit record either to my email address which is richardson57@ntlworld.com or via Facebook

Feel free to wear your club vest or T shirt if you wish, but its not mandatory if you’d rather not

The Jack Frost race dates will be

11 October 2020

8 November 2020

13 December 2020

10 January 2021

14 February 2021

14 March 2021

I’ll publish the results of each weeks race via Sue in the week after the Jack Frost Sunday so we can congratulate our virtual scoring team in both the senior and junior categories and at the end of the series the committee will award unique Jack Frost Runners of the Series for seniors while the junior coaches will decide the two junior winners. We will also incorporate the usual handicap event into the final race based on your times in the previous races

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at richardson57@ntlworld.com or via facebook messenger, but I hope you’ll join in and support this series while we try to come up with innovative ideas to keep everyone motivated to run in these difficult times

Many thanks

04/10/2020 Junior Update

WERRINGTON JOGGERS – JUNIOR SECTION UPDATE – 4 October 2020

Dear Parent/Carer and Junior member

Thank you to those members that have responded to our previous emails, if you have not, then to help us to plan ahead for when Juniors resumes, please could you email me back to confirm if your child wishes to continue attending so we get an idea of numbers and can start planning coaching rotas.  I would also appreciate if you could include in the email a brief description of your child’s running fitness so that we can start planning sessions and allocating groups.  Please email this information to richardson57@ntlworld.com.

Just to confirm, We have still not got a return date yet due to the reasons mentioned in our previous emails.   As mentioned in my previous emails, the lockdown and coronavirus will have affected us all differently,  some individuals may have exercised more/less or hardly at all during lockdown and this is fine and is expected as we all have coped with this pandemic in our own way.   

With this in mind, our coaching team thought it might be useful to give a generalised exercise plan to help increase your child’s fitness levels.  This is not mandatory and is only provided as guidance.

Here is the next two weeks training.

04/10/2020 Junior Section Update

WERRINGTON JOGGERS – JUNIOR SECTION UPDATE

Dear Parent/Carer and Junior member

We hope you are all well and enjoying the summer break.  We are starting to look at and are planning the reopening of our Junior section but we are unable to give an exact return date due to the continued closure of the Werrington Sports Centre.  Peterborough City Council have said that it will be sometime in September and we believe that for Juniors to resume we must have access to the centre to allow us to discharge our duty of care to your children.  As soon as that date is confirmed then we will contact you again about the resumption of Werrington Joggers Juniors.The lockdown and coronavirus will have affected us all differently,  some individuals may have exercised more/less or hardly at all during lockdown and this is fine and is expected as we all have coped with this pandemic in our own way.

New runners are very welcome and we have a team of volunteers to help you in your first few weeks with the club whether you are a complete running novice or an experienced veteran. Our volunteer rota can be found here.

Junior Duke of Edinburgh

Do you enjoy running? Would you like to join a sports club? Are you worried about keeping fit ?  Are you looking for a way to complete your Duke of Edinburgh Physical?

Werrington Joggers run a Junior Section for children aged 9-16. We meet on Tuesday evenings between 6pm – 7pm at the Werrington Sports Centre.

Your children will receive instruction from qualified coaches, become part of a growing running community within Peterborough and have access to road, cross country and track events.

Annual subscription is only £15 and will be refunded if after 2 weeks your child does not wish to continue.

Induction evenings take place regularly during the year and the next induction dates can be found on the Junior Introduction page here 

During the induction we will cover a range of topics such as when to eat, injuries, clothing, competition and behaviour.

We hope you will consider joining our friendly local club and we look forward to seeing you and your children at our next induction.

For any further information prior to the next Induction evening please contact either Tim Cook (07793 906746) or Louise Richardson (07732 407070) otherwise you are most welcome to simply turn up with your child on the next date.

Sunday Runs

We regularly meet on a Sunday for a cross country run. These are social events and can vary between 6 and 12 miles, often with alternative shorter routes. Very often muddy - trail shoes are recommended if you have any - and run from local village halls where possible.

Sunday Run - Nassington

Many Sunday Runs have more than one distance alternative and can vary in terrain. Please see the Diary for more details of times, locations and formats. Sunday Runs are an excellent way to get to know your fellow runners and our tradition of "looping back" to keep groups together ensures that no-one is left running on their own or will get lost. Please support the run hosts who plan and arrange the runs and spend a Sunday morning in the fresh air on some of our local countryside routes.

The club diary has details of the meeting points and start times of the runs. Start times are prompt. The runs have a guide to distance and difficulty.

Parkrun

Many members take part in the regular Peterborough parkrun and a list of the latest results for the consolidated Werrington Joggers members can be found by clicking here. This is a measured 5km time trial open to the general public every Saturday morning at Ferry Meadows country park at 9am, and elsewhere as an unmeasured 5km run. these are not races and no entry fee is required but you must pre-register on the  web site.

Discounts

Club members, friends and family are entitled to discounts on purchases from
