Learning to Run

Learning to Run can be a Soul Destroying Process...

The burning lungs, the aching legs, your head telling you to stop!

Run too fast and this experience is guaranteed...‚Äč

Our beginners running programme will teach you how to enjoy running and see constant improvements in your ability.

We'll start you out with walking and short jogging periods to ensure you experience success from session one. You'll gradually spend more time jogging and less time walking.

Before you know it you'll be joining one of our faster groups and running your way to a happier and healthier life.

The benefits of running range from weight loss, effective stress release, improved moods and self esteem but there are far more benefits we don't have space to discuss.

We'll support your journey with educational videos and a bunch of new friends who want you to succeed.


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!

Trepidation Be Gone

I started with some trepidation as a couch potato in Jan 2017 and by the end of March I had done my first Park Run (5km).

I continued running throughout 2017 as a stress buster and the club coach, Conor Graham, helped me with my technique and stamina.

Now at the beginning of 2018 I am working towards my first Half Marathon. Completely unbelievable and I would have given up a long time ago without Cheltenham Running Club.

Highly recommended.

I ran Gloucester 10k by November, never thought that would be possible before!

I joined CRC in April 2017, and it was the best decision...Was not a runner at all previously, but with amazing community and support I ran Gloucester 10k by November, never thought that would be possible before!

Couch to 5k Success

Learning about pacing and intervals has completely changed the way I run. I know it is important to run the best way for me and to not compare my journey to anyone else's. I would like to thank Conor and the members of the club for their continued support, I couldn't do this without you!!
