About us

Who we are

Watford Joggers is a friendly club catering for runners and joggers of mixed abilities, from marathon runners to those looking to take their first steps.
We have a very wide age range from early 20s to those in their 80s and have an equal male/female split with a membership of close to 150.

What we do

At meetings we split into groups and run at various distances and speeds. On Wednesdays we have a jog/walk group for beginners.
On Sundays and Wednesdays (during Summer months) our two meeting points give us access to the canal and an extensive network of footpaths leading to Sarratt, Chipperfield and Rickmansworth among other places.
On Wednesday evenings during the winter months, we do set routes around Abbots Langley, Bushey, Croxley and the Dome. These vary between 7 and 8 miles but some groups take shorter routes based on them.
We always make sure that everyone has someone to run with.

Where and when we meet

We meet three times a week:-
Sundays at 9.15am, Cassiobury Park, Gade Avenue entrance. map
Wednesdays at 7.15pm, West Herts Sports Club, 8 Park Avenue, Watford, WD18 7HP map
Saturdays at 9:45 for Parkrun Plus (Interval Training) at the Bandstand in Cassiobury Park

Wednesdays attract a larger number of people, with many stopping for a drink after their run.

Races

Although we are not principally a competitive club, many members enjoy participating in local races and we have a Cross Country team in a local Sunday League.

Social

There is an active social side to the club, with many different events organised throughout the year.
Events include quiz nights, food themed evenings, beer festivals and pub runs. We also try and get at least one trip abroad each year, for a long weekend incorporating a race somewhere.

Membership

Membership of Watford Joggers includes social membership of the West Herts Sports Club in Watford, with their changing rooms, showers and bar facilities. We are affiliated to the South of England Athletic association and the Herts AAA.  Come along for a few weeks before deciding if you want to join.

If you are a new member or your contact details have changed since last year, please also fill out a membership form, available here or the membership secretary (see committee page).

London Marathon

We have been involved with this event since it began in 1981 and as a club we man the 24 mile water station where those not running enjoy a busy day handing out the bottled water.
