JOGGERS AND WALKERS
J&W is the mid-week section of the Athletic Club and caters for all ages and levels of fitness with various groups taking part in an approximate hour of walking or jogging.
J&W meet at the Pakuranga Athletic clubrooms, Cascades Rd., Tuesday and Thursday mornings, rain, hail or shine. Clubrooms open at 8.20am. Fast walkers leave at 8.45am, intermediate groups at 9.00am and slow walkers at 9.15am. Groups aim to return to clubrooms between 10.00 and 10.20am.
Casual members are welcome for a small fee. (Refer current J&W booklet*) An honesty box is on the counter. Casual members have voting rights at the J&W AGM and can stand for the J&W committee. Alternatively, members can register with the club which covers membership from the 1st April to 31st March the following year. Registration fees are listed on the on-line registration form, accessible from this website's home page. Registered mid-week members have full voting rights at the Athletic Club AGM. Note: This annual fee only covers you for participation in this section. If you wish to compete in any other section of the club such as Cross Country & Road or Track & Field, you must pay the appropriate club membership fee.
Tea, coffee and a biscuit are provided after the group exercises for a small charge. An honesty box is on the counter. Morning teas must be poured before 10.45am.
The section organises several outings each year, mainly during the summer months.
Transport for many outings is by hired coach or ferry. However, sometimes it is by private car. In this case, car-pooling is encouraged.
For those not wishing to go on an outing, there is always a run or walk from the clubrooms so please come along regardless.
