07/09/2017 Petition re Rhubarb Bridge

Dear Member,

 As you may know, the City Council intends to replace the bridge over/under the Soke Parkway at the Brotherhoods roundabout with pedestrian lights on the slip roads. Many of us run that way in the dark evenings, and some cycle that route. This plan will make the journey more difficult, slow and dangerous. If you wish to make your feelings felt on this there is a new petition on Rhubarb bridge plans.

Your committee feel that many individuals will carry more weight than the club making a group complaint.

 

07/09/2017 Sunday Run from Elton 10/9

Message from Dan re this week's Sunday run: 

Just a quick one for your diaries - this Sunday's 'cake' run on 10th Sept at 09:00am from Elton will be 11 miles (predominantly off-road) taking in 4-5 Northamptonshire villages (with water + jelly baby stop at the top of a castle!). A shorter 6 mile option is available (still taking in the half time refreshments) so ideal for those new to Sunday runs or wanting to give it a go. Tea, coffee and homemade cakes will be a plenty at the end. Please meet opposite the Crown Inn Pub on Duck Street PE8 6RQ. Plenty of parking round the green. Look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

In the past these articles have included joggers completing their first marathon, 50th park run, thanking marshalls for their involvement at races, sharing details about new races or training routes, showing their appreciation for being presented a club award etc, the list is endless.

Club Sunday Run

Various - see Diary for details

Werrington Sports Centre is here

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.

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.

Westwood Musical Society

Every year our own Rod McDonald joins Westwood Musical Society in their annual presentation at the Key Theatre. This year is Irving Berlin's White Christmas. Traditionally attended by dozens of Werrington Joggers on the Friday evening showing (this year 27th October), please contact Rod for ticket details.

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.
