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

Junior Duke of Edinburgh

Do you enjoy running? Would you like to join a sports club? Are you worried about keeping fit ?  Are you looking for a way to complete your Duke of Edinburgh Physical?

Werrington Joggers run a Junior Section for children aged 9-16. We meet on Tuesday evenings between 6pm – 7pm at the Werrington Sports Centre.

Your children will receive instruction from qualified coaches, become part of a growing running community within Peterborough and have access to road, cross country and track events.

Annual subscription is only £15 and will be refunded if after 2 weeks your child does not wish to continue.

Induction evenings take place regularly during the year and the next induction dates can be found on the Junior Introduction page here 

During the induction we will cover a range of topics such as when to eat, injuries, clothing, competition and behaviour.

We hope you will consider joining our friendly local club and we look forward to seeing you and your children at our next induction.

For any further information prior to the next Induction evening please contact either Tim Cook (07793 906746) or Louise Richardson (07732 407070) otherwise you are most welcome to simply turn up with your child on the next date.

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 have a guide to distance and difficulty.

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
