Who We Help

Couch to 5k Runners

Learning to run 5k without stopping for a breather or a stretch is unthinkable for most people who join our Couch to 5k Squads but they soon believe thanks to our cushy programme which actually get's you to 5k, not just 30 minutes.

10k
Runners

Those pushing on from their first 5k are often quick step up to join those looking to improve their 10k time. Achieving a personal best 10k is often very simple after learning the relationship between speed and distance. Check out the free gift...

Half Marathon Runners

Many of our members take on a few Half Marathons each year and soon learn the importance of pacing. 

Failing to set a target speed for long runs is sighted as their major lesson. Learn  about building your distances safely via the link below.

Progressive Running Programme

Progressive Running Programme

Our runners progress through a 10 week programme which get gradually harder as our runners improve in ability. 

The goal for each runner is to progress one pace group each time the start a new programme. 

Yoga is a fantastic way to prevent the muscle tightening which leads to 90% of running injuries.

These classes are suitable for beginners to intermediate yogis and all level of running ability. 

New Member Success

I began running with CRC about 6 weeks ago and it has been one of the best things that i did. I have made some great friends and feel supported 100% by head coach Conor. The club is sociable and welcoming for new members.

Off Road 10k Success

I joined CRC to find a structure to my running. I wanted to improve my 10k time, the first race, after starting training, I knocked 3 minutes off the old time and the second race was 2 minutes quicker again. All comes down to coaching with Conor.

You can Transform into a Runner!

Very friendly. You don’t need to be a runner to join , as with the support of the coach and your running friends, you can be transformed into a runner. Want to walk instead? No problem join the walking group. Age isn’t a barrier either. I joined when I was well into my 60’s. Conor designs a personal training plan for you. He’s always contactable for advice .
