The Newmarket Joggers Junior section has grown from a small group of just six members to an enthusiastic and thriving club with over 80 members ranging from 5 to 17 years of age.

The group meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6.00pm at Scaltback Middle School playing fields in the summer and the school hall during the winter months, the sessions last about an hour. Please note time change for training effective from October 2013 and throughout the winter months.

The main focus is on running disciplines such as track, sprint and endurance, however the youngsters can have the opportunity to also try other aspects of athletics such as jumps and throws and follow an England Athletics approved training schedule throughout. All sessions are varied with the emphasis on having fun and learning new skills.

The Juniors compete as a club along with the Seniors at the Suffolk Winter Cross Country League, there are 5 fixtures throughout the winter and open to those aged 11 and over, further details and dates can be found on the Suffolk Cross Country League 2013/2014 page on the website. In addition the Juniors also compete in the Suffolk County Cross Country Championships which will be held on Sunday 5th January 2014 at Ickworth Park.

If interested in joining the club or for further information please contact our Junior Coordinator – Cathy Elsdon at cathy@newmarketjoggers.co.uk or telephone 07732 124811
