13/06/2024 Polka Dot Races

Note for potential competitors; the new Polka Dot Races at Ferry Meadows look great but as yet do not have a course measurement certificate, and as such, cannot be accepted for Records or Standards. I'm sure if they are successful and popular (and we hope they are) they will become measured and certified, but in the meantime, have fun !

30/05/2024 Werrington 3K/5K Marshals - how to volunteer / marshals draw for free race places

Dear members

Firstly a big thank you to members who have already volunteered to marshal our 3K/5K event on Wednesday 10 July - we have had a good response to date, but still need another 25 or so volunteers, so please sign up if you have not already done so. 

As an incentive to sign up I am arranging a draw  (for marshals only) for free places which I have secured for the following events:

Whitemoor 5m ( at March)                14 July (same date as Thurlby 10K ( CC))

Sawtry 10m                                       8 September

Sandringham 10K                             29 September (CC)  

Fen 10                                              27 October (CC)

Folksworth 15                                  19 January 2025   ( 2 places

So if you have already volunteered to marshal or will volunteer in response to this message and would like to be entered in the draw for any / all above events please let me know by

  •  emailing me at wjchairman@werringtonjoggers.co.uk
  • adding your name to the lists I will be bringing to Tuesday club nights

Deadline for entering the draws is Tuesday 18 June , with the draws being made at club night on Tuesday 25 June.

This is only open to members who volunteer to marshal so please don't enter the draw/s if you are not planning to volunteer. 

Here is the original message from Shona and Terry regarding the event , and the link to register as a marshal: 

Werrington GP Series 10th July 3k and 5k – marshals needed.

We are hosting the GP series 3k and 5k on the 10th of July and are seeking marshals to be at the Werrington Sports Centre from 17:45 to assist with this important event for the club. Both routes are new this year due to traffic issues. There are a range of roles available at the start, finish and out on the course. You will be given a full briefing before on the night, and we will share a list of who is assigned to each marshal point in advance so that you can see where you will be. Family friends and family members are also very welcome as we need a similar number of marshals to previous years.

If you have a favourite spot or role, please let us know. As the routes are new you may be assigned to somewhere new. Also, if you would prefer to be in a pair or with someone else, do also respond on that basis. We will try to avoid putting people out on their own, but there are a couple of places where this may be necessary. We will check that you are happy and comfortable with that.

How to volunteer – please send your details to werringtongpseries@gmail.com including your phone number. We are going to set up a temporary WhatsApp group for the evening which will be removed afterwards. This lets everyone know when the race has started and other bits of key information as the races progress.  Thanks!

We are looking forward to the event being a success for the club and we hope in advance that you enjoy the event too!

Looking forward to hearing from you.    Shona (Lead Marshal) and Terry (Race Director)

Featured Race

This months featured race is the March Athletics Club Whitemoor 5. This local race takes place on mixed terrain. Details of entry below.

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.
