The next round of the senior club championships is the Eye 5K on Wednesday 22 June 2022. New for 2022 will be an online entry page where you can get your entry in before race day. 
 
Following that our next Club Championship event is the 3k track event at the Peterborough embankment athletic track on Wednesday 29th June. We have booked the track from 19.15 and members should arrive at that time to register. We will run 3, possibly 4 races on the night, dependent on the numbers who attend, with all those in a given age category running in the same race
 
Tim has agreed to organise the evening but needs 4 or 5 people to help him, firstly with registration and setting up the races and then timing and recording the results. Members can run in their race and help so if you are willing to lend a hand please let Tim know directly on: tim30dstj@aol.com 
 
For those who have not run at the track before, car parking is free in the car park next to the Embankment after 4pm and 3000m is 7½ laps of the track. We will also have access to the pavilion to leave bags etc along with toilets, showers and changing facilities.
 
WJ will cover the cost of the track hire therefore whilst there is no cost to members, any donations made on the night in lieu of an entry fee or contribution to the hire cost will be added to our charity fundraising this year
 
If you've any questions please let Tim know.

Please be aware that due to the temporary closure of the Werrington Sports Centre the club will be meeting at the Community Room of the Ploughman, next to Tesco. This room is through the door on the right as you enter the main entrance.

The Ploughman is at 1 Staniland Way, Werrington, Peterborough, PE4 6NA.

To avoid congestion and to ensure Juniors can be collected at the end of their session, please can Senior members use the front of the commuity room, and Juniors the rear of the room, furthest from the entrance door.

Please can all avoid congregating at the community room door or at the outside main entrance so that the customers for the bar can freely access it.



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.

For all news, events and coaching for our Junior Section, please click Werrington Joggers Junior Site.

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.
