28/12/2017 Charity chosen for 2018

In 2018 WJ will be supporting No Gain No Pain (NGNPUK) who are a small local charity raising money for syringe drivers to be used in our local communities. 

A syringe driver is a small computerised machine that can be programmed to give patients a measured dose of pain relief and other drugs during palliative care.  The machines can help patients remain at home with loved ones instead of going into hospital or a hospice. 

 They cost £1100 each. NGNPUK have donated an extra 39 machines over the last two years and these have been in constant use since they were handed over.  One machine can help so many patients over its working lifetime. 

You can find out more about us at https://www.facebook.com/ngnpuk or https://ngnpuk.weebly.com/

 

 

28/12/2017 Charity fundraising

This is the Werrington Joggers newsletter that is issued for joggers by the joggers.  The newsletter is produced approximately 2 -3 times per year and all joggers can contribute.  The purpose of the newsletter is to enable joggers to tell their stories/experiences/ambitions with other joggers. In the past these articles have included joggers completing their first marathon, 50th park run, thanking marshalls for their involvement at races, sharing details about new races or training routes, showing their appreciation for being presented a club award etc, the list is endless.

Anyone can write a article and send it wjnewsletter1984@gmail.com, the only request is the article must be be in  a word document and we always like a photo (JPEG).

Club Sunday Run

Various - see Diary for details

Werrington Sports Centre is here

New runners are very welcome and we have a team of volunteers to help you in your first few weeks with the club whether you are a complete running novice or an experienced veteran. Our volunteer rota can be found here.

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 are graded "A" - up to 10m fairly flat, "B" - 10-11m with hills, "C" 11m+ with hills and mud.

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.

Discounts

Club members, friends and family are entitled to discounts on purchases from
