Junior Running - Message from Thorney RC
Page created: 05 December 2016 by Geoff
Child Safety and Protection
Following alarming and distressing news about junior sports in recent weeks, Thorney RC wish to make it clear that safety and welfare of children is their major consideration at their Manor Laps events.
Each week the session is run by qualified teacher (Geoff Howes – with CRB police check and secondary teaching subject is PE).
Each week we have either 1 or 2 child protection officers present (Sally Louth and Jackie Dawson – both have CRB police check).
Parents are expected to stay and watch, or participate.
The children run laps of 500m and are visible at all times – they do not go out of sight.
Young children are accompanied to the Manor door if needing the toilets
Marshals are sent to patrol the corners and far side of the field if necessary (eg if dogs or older teenagers are around)
1st aiders are always present but if necessary, medical assistance is provided at the Leisure Centre.
Graduation Run - Dec 27th
Page created: 06 December 2016 by Geoff
December 27th 10am start
All members and non-members are invited to the Field Of Dreams, Whittlesey, which is at the end of Stonald Road (where the Green Wheel route into Peterborough starts – it is at the join of Crossway Hand and Stonald Road).
The event will be a 5k handicap along the graduation route which takes members to the Millenium Bridge and back. The route is completely off road, but along a tarmac cycle path.
If you would like to take part please email Nathalie before hand if possible so she can work out your handicap. However it will be ok to turn up on the day and Nathalie will give you a handicap.
The intention is that everyone has a staggered start but finish together!
It is open to any members and those that have joined in the 5k schemes and anybody else who would like to join in. You do not need to be a club member. You will get an accurate 5k time.

Our Training Sessions
We are a small club and we hold three training sessions a week. Monday and Wednesday sessions begin at 7pm and we meet at the entrance to the swimming pool at Manor Leisure Centre, Station Rd, Whittlesey, PE7 1UA.
Monday is a structured training run with various speeds and distances depending on your ability. We use established routes of 3,4, 5 and 6 miles and we never let anyone run alone. We stick to circular routes with street lights in the winter. When the evenings become lighter the routes are more rural and varied as we aim to keep away from traffic.
The Wednesday session is more focused on speed training. This is a structured session on a measured course around the Snoots Rd estate in Whittlesey, and we meet first at the Manor Leisure Centre at 7pm. We work at our own ability and speed.
We also hold a family session on the field on the left at the Manor Leisure centre. This is a fun session which involves timed laps of the field of various distances, relay races and homemade cakes. In the winter this takes place on Saturday morning, and in the summer we enjoy the light evenings on a Friday evening. Times vary.
We are also planning to run our second Beginners course in May 2017. This free course aims to get individuals from the couch to 5km in 10 weeks in a safe and fun way. The course is well structured and run by qualified run leaders who are assisted by club members. It is aimed at absolute beginners or those who are returning to running after a long absence. The start date will be confirmed shortly.
If you are interested in joining any of these sessions, please contact us.
