We Are Back!
The Woodbridge Shufflers are holding our Tuesday club nights and Sunday social runs again. But things are a little different. We have changed how we meet and run to make sure we keep everyone safe. Our sessions are open for new and existing runners. So, if you’re fed up with running alone come and join us!
On summer Tuesdays we offer three options
- A trail run of 6 to 8 miles, in and around Woodbridge
- A coached session, aimed at improving your running
- A “Back to Running” session, for those starting to run, or coming back after a break.
In the winter months we drop the trail run.
You’re welcome to join us for any of these sessions or try a different one each week.
Our Sunday social runs are on local trails and footpaths in and around Woodbridge, although we’ll sometimes run from somewhere a bit further away to explore the local countryside. The runs are usually around 10 miles with shorter and longer options available. Each of the group is led by an England Athletics qualified run leader or coach.
Under our new way of doing things, you’ll need to book in advance. This is to make sure we can comply with the latest England Athletics guidelines, by running in groups of 8 people or fewer. You’ll need to keep a distance of 2 metres between yourself and other runners too and each group will set off at a staggered time.
We are using the Spond booking app to manage our groups and to keep records for track and trace purposes. You can download the app or get to it via the web address https://spond.com/welcome Once you have the app you will need to join Woodbridge Shufflers group and enter our unique code YYIVL which will then generate invites to our regular runs. All members will get notifications of runs in advance inviting you to sign-up for the runs. When registering for Spond please complete your personal details especially including your next of kin details and any medical conditions we should know about. This is important in case of any emergency when out running together. Please also read our ‘Covid-19 Safe Environment’ statement which can be found by clicking here. By accepting an invitation to run with us you are agreeing to follow the covid-19 safe protocols.
If you are new to the club and want to give us a try or just want some advice about starting running it will be lovely to hear from you. Our run leaders are friendly and supportive and can help you whether you are new to running, or a seasoned Mo Farrah.
