“All you need to get you back on the road to fitness and happiness”
I’ve only just joined this wonderful, welcoming walking club. Although I’ve only managed to walk a couple of times, I know I can go whenever I want and still be made welcome.
I decided to get fit after time spent in hospital. This club helps with all you need to get you back on the road to fitness and happiness.
Thank you for instilling me with a little confidence.
“So glad I joined”
Following a move to Cheltenham 18 months ago, I wanted to make new friendships, get fitter and explore the local area.
The walking club ticks all these boxes, everyone is so friendly, I’m feeling fitter and I’ve found some new and interesting places to walk and talk!
So glad I joined. Jean
I used to run in my younger years when I was in the RAF and tried again about 6 years ago with another running club but unfortunately did not enjoy it and gave up. Having had a recommendation from a previous work colleague and friend, Tina Sawle, I joined Cheltenham Running Club in January 2019.
Age is not a barrier, nor is fitness level. I am now 57 years old and having started on the Couch to 5km programme, I successfully completed the Cheltenham Parkrun in June 2019. That was it, I was hooked and I joined the Summer Training Squad to continue my journey.
I suffered a knee injury which set me back a little and I missed the Cheltenham Challenge 10km in August. However, with the support of physio, advice from Conor and other members of the Club, I was able to build up strength and get going again. I am amazed at how much I have improved from those early days when I thought I would never run 1km without stopping never mind 10km!
I have now gained confidence and recently completed my first official 10km in the Worcester City event on 15th September.
The members of the club are so friendly and supportive, I couldn’t have done it without them.
“Friendly People and a Good Atmosphere”
Great club, supportive and inclusive. Very good for beginner runners. Friendly people and a good atmosphere on training sessions. Would recommend to all
“Joined Couch to 5k in Lockdown!”
I joined CRC in lockdown 3 as I set myself the challenge of completing Couch to 5k! With the support of Conor and my fellow C25K squad members, the useful Zoom calls and training videos I did it! I'm now in the Summer Squad working my way towards 10K and love the support and encouragement of running with others now we can! Everyone in the club is super supportive and the comments you get in the Facebook group really help to motivate you. Who would have thought I would be running 3 times a week and why did I leave it until my 50s to do so!!!
“Big Improvements After Just 6 Weeks”
I’ve been running with CRC for 6 weeks and love the mix of people that come along. There are different running groups for different abilities and a good mix of training sessions and runs. I’m seeing a big improvement in my general fitness and enjoying my running again.
“Enjoying Running and Progressing Fast!”
Enjoying running much more than expected and really surprised how quickly I have been able to run longer distances over 5k. Looking forward to getting up to 10k.
“I never thought I would say that running can be fun, but it really can be”
I joined CRC as a wannabe runner on the Couch to 5k squad. Being part of a running community has been a massive support to me. I go out with other runners of a similar ability and we develop together, encouraging, motivating and supporting each other.
We're quite a sociable bunch!
It's made the difference between me looking for excuses to not go out for a run and actually looking forward to it. Conor (Head Coach at CRC) is good at helping to keep us all moving forward and working on injury prevention, recovery and training.
I never thought I would say that running can be fun, but it really can be, Go ahead join us.
“All club runs have been great, even that first club run”
Fantastic running club. All club runs have been great, even that first one, when I arrived I realised how supportive and friendly it was. Looking forward to another year of club runs, excellent coaching and future club social events!
“Back from 2 years out of Running to Crush the Cheltenham Half Marathon”
I wanted to get back into running after a break of 2 years. I set myself the Cheltenham half marathon in Oct as my target. The club got me going again and they are so welcoming and inclusive. Conor gives great advice. I thoroughly recommend the club and am constantly telling friends about it.
