|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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.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
|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.
With this in mind,we as a 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.
Building a strong core is a key part to all exercise but especially running.
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
