13/05/2021 Covid-19 Update

I am delighted that following the announcements made by the Prime Minister on Monday, the club committee have agreed unanimously that we should resume club nights next week, Tuesday 18th May at 7pm. Having been in regular contact with the management team of the Sports Centre in the last 48 hours though there will be a need to do some things a little differently

Firstly as with the juniors, we will meet and remain outside the Sports Centre, (probably on the square of grass so as not to block the entrance) and we will not use the drama studio for announcements. I will keep announcements to a minimum and would ask that you try as best you can to maintain social distancing in the short time we are together as a large group

Secondly although we will be able to access the centre for the toilets prior to running, facemasks must be worn unless you have an exemption. After running only the small changing rooms at the far end of the changing room corridor will be available for our use and I believe these only contain one shower each. The main changing rooms used by the school will be locked and unavailable

We will operate in this manner until at least the date of the next Government review of its roadmap in June

If anyone has any questions please drop me a line at wjchairman@werringtonjoggers.co.uk

I appreciate that not everyone will want to return next week especially those members who have still to receive either a first or second vaccine, but I hope that when you do feel safe we will see you back very soon. In the meantime though, it has been a long 14 months and I look forward to seeing those who feel comfortable returning, back at the centre next Tuesday

 

02/11/2020 Frostbite Friendly League - Virtual Jack Frost

New for 2020/21 - Frostbite Friendly League is Virtual.

One event for seniors and one for juniors. 

  • Runners can run any time on the Saturday or Sunday with seniors doing 5 miles and juniors 1.5 miles as the normal league.
  • Competitors much respect social distancing rules and adhere to the latest guide to exercising with others.   
  • Each competitor is responsible for uploading time to an online form. It will also be available on the Frostbite Friendly League website and facebook page. All times to be uploaded by 6pm on Sunday of Frosty weekend. 
  • Normal scoring applies with 3 ladies, 3 men and 4 either m/f to make up the 10 senior scorers. For juniors again 2 girls, 2 boys and a further runner either m/f to make up the five scorers.
  • If a team does not have the required number of scorers missing positions will be calculated based on normal Frostbite rules. Therefore if 200 run, all non-scorers will be added as 201.
  • Points will also be awarded based on how many runners a team submits.

Results sorted as now and league table prepared.

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 richardson57@ntlworld.com 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 richardson57@ntlworld.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

Many thanks

WERRINGTON JOGGERS – JUNIOR SECTION UPDATE – 4 October 2020

Dear Parent/Carer and Junior member

Thank you to those members that have responded to our previous emails, if you have not, then to help us to plan ahead for when Juniors resumes, please could you email me back to confirm if your child wishes to continue attending so we get an idea of numbers and can start planning coaching rotas.  I would also appreciate if you could include in the email a brief description of your child’s running fitness so that we can start planning sessions and allocating groups.  Please email this information to richardson57@ntlworld.com.

Just to confirm, We have still not got a return date yet due to the reasons mentioned in our previous emails.   As mentioned in my previous emails, 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, our 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.

Here is the next two weeks training.

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.
