Sudbury Joggers are a Road Running club based in Sudbury / Gt Cornard area of West Suffolk The club meets on Wednesday Evenings at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm run from The Great Cornard Upper School / Leisure Centre.
Distances run on club nights depend on who and how many turn up, but normally there will be someone to run with. In fact we make a point of not letting anyone run on their own on club nights.
Club members regularly take part in locally organised events from 5 miles to the marathon, as well as some of those organised further away. As well as running events club members have also taken part in Triathlons, Biathlons and Trail Runs. The club has this year (2005/6) formed a composite team with Newmarket Joggers to take part in The Fenn Wright Suffolk Winter Cross Country League. A series of 5 cross country events starting with Framlingham on 30th October, Woodbridge on 20th November, Bungay on 4th December, Stowmarket on 8th January and finishing with Bury St Edmunds on the 12th February. There is to be a trophy presentation and fun cross country relay event at Woodbridge School to finalise the league on 12th March.
Club members are entitled to take part the he Suffolk Cross Country Championships at RAF Barnham on 15th January.
No pressure is put onto members to take part in any of the organised events, so if anyone wants to just run for pleasure and fitness they will be made more than welcome.
Anyone training with a marathon in mind can often meet up with other club members on a Sunday morning for that longer run which can be taken more serious if needed. These longer training runs are set up on Wednesday evenings.
We have just appointed a Child Protection Officer and therefore the club is accepting Junior members between the ages of 11 to 16. Training evening for the juniors is on Friday evening at 6.30pm by the all weather pitch at the rear of the sports centre.
Changing and showers are available at the leisure centre. After the run members quite often join in with a relaxing drink in the centres bar, tea and coffee are also served. Unfortunately the Sports centre is under refurbishment at the moment and showers & snacks are unavailable.
