JOG courses explained (NEW- Feb '20)
Cater from beginners through to a good club standard. We call the courses Hare, Squirrel, Badger and Fox and these offer a clear progression in the difficulty level. Fox course incorporates adult training exercises.
Hare to Badger are all within an enclosed school site and thus will be perfect for younger ones to have a go. Badger has a bit of an urban flavour, darting around between school buildings - be sure to read the control descriptions carefully.
We have an urban Fox course this week, which uses a newly-mapped area of town south-west of the school. The area is a mix of 30 and 20 limits, but under-16s wanting to run Fox will still need to be accompanied by an adult. See the attachment for a flavour of the urban map.
£1 per head for everyone (whether a member or not).
An additional £1 for second runs (NEW, Feb '20)

Registration & Start Times
Courses open at 2pm and close at 3pm. Please try to arrive before 2.30pm for your run. We will start bringing controls in at 3.30pm so if you are still out, please make your way back to registration.
Registration is on the field near the chapel, which is across the road. There will be signs, but all you need to do is walk back up the entrance road, cross South Street, turn left along South Street until you can turn right up the main school drive. You'll see the start flag at the top of the drive, and registration will be round to the left from there. Due to children running in between buildings and across the site roads, we want to minimise cars in the course area.
School grounds with playing fields, fully enclosed.
As this is a fenced school site this will be a good opportunity for children to “have a go” by themselves if they wish.
