|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

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

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.
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!!
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.
- Rod McDonald
|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!!
