29/05/2020 Lockdown Handicap

Introducing the Lockdown handicap!

Between now and 23:59 on Tuesday 2nd June, your task is to complete a timed 1.5 mile. Anywhere you like, but obviously not on a mile and a half downwards stretch 😂. When completed, submit that time to me either through strava if I follow you, FB messenger, or add on the event page I’m about to create or on here. Email also fine. Although I am on Fetch I need to work out how to get back onto it again, but will let you know if I get that sorted. One submission only during this period.

Open to all WJ members whether you've done the handicap before or not, but if you haven't then please submit your most recent Peterborough parkrun, 5k or 10k race time at the same time

No prizes this time, but maybe next time and we'll spot the cheats as we know how fast you can run. Hopefully we'll get the results out next Wednesday 3rd June

Enjoy!

Sarah Wynne.

28/03/2020 Covid-19 Club Suspension

Club Activities Suspended

England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April.

https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/news/coronavirus-statement/

Consequently Werrington Joggers have suspended all Junior and Senior club nights and formal Sunday Runs.

Those actvities listed in the Club Diary that are known to be cancelled are marked as such, but all activities until the end of April should be presumed to be cancelled even if they are still in the diary.

In the mean time please continue to take care of yourself and keep washing your hands!!

17/03/2020 Theatre Postponement

Due to the coronavirus situation the Key Theatre has closed for the time being.

'Made in Dagenham' has now been postponed until September 2020 - the WJ members can use their tickets for the performance on Friday 25 September instead.

Please come to the rearranged event on 25  September if you can: if you can't make it please let Rod know at club night and he'll liaise with Key Theatre regarding a refund.

16/03/2020 Club nights -Update re Corona Virus

Following the latest advice regarding Covid19 (Coronavirus) I have sought the views of others within the club and also spoken to the Vivacity staff at the leisure centre about what Werrington Joggers should do. As at 7pm on Monday evening the centre was still open, albeit with a heightened cleaning regime and there was no suggestion that it might be closed in the forceable future

With that in mind Werrington Joggers seniors and juniors will go ahead as planned on Tuesday evening this week (17th). However it is intended to take a number of actions to limit social contact

Members (both seniors and juniors) should meet outside the centre (weather permitting) but please do not block the entrance for other centre users. For juniors, the coaches will be present there and will then organise training in the normal way.

For seniors there will be no formal announcements and members should feel free to set off as soon as they wish, if they are confident that their usual group is complete

Please can I ask seniors to look out for any new attendees who might happen to make tomorrow their first night and introduce them to an appropriate group and explain to them what is happening

Members are of course entirely free to choose whether they wish to attend tomorrow or not and I completely understand that some may not wish to, all I would ask though is that if you have any of the coronavirus symptoms or feel unwell please do not attend

This is a very fluid situation and I will endeavour to keep people up to date via Facebook, the website or email if the situation changes but meanwhile take care of yourself and each other and if in doubt, wash your hands!!

Thank you

Tim

02/11/2019 Notice

Werrington Joggers are saddened to announce the death of Jane Brown on Wednesday 30th October after a courageous battle with cancer

Jane currently holds every lady vet club record on the road for LV65, setting the most recent at Blackpool marathon in April 2018. She was also presented with the Ron Dodson Cup at our presentation evening in January

To quote Sarah she may have ultimately lost her battle but she gave it a good kicking first

To Sarah and her wider family the club extends its deepest sympathies

RIP Jane
