Scroll down for more details...
Our next Beginners Intake is Starting From the 21st of September!
“ANYONE CAN RUN” but some don’t realise how fun and pain free it can be until they seek help with it.
During Beginner’s Week we’ll show you how to pace yourself so you don’t burn out too fast or cause injury.
We’ll support you with online education, coaching advice, inspirational stories and a bunch of new friends who want you to succeed. Join in small group club runs which help you prioritise your runs, gain coach guidance and member support.
Monday 21st September: 1pm
Are you struggling to build up your distance of running non-stop?
In this presentation you’ll learn the strategies we implement with members of our online Couch to 5k Squad.
How to tackle hills
How to stop burning lungs
How to stop cramping lower legs or jelly thighs
We’ll cover it all and answer your questions too!
Monday 21st September: 6.30pm
Did you know the benefits of running happen between your runs?
Most people set out for runs without a realistic target to aim for. Others set their sights too low and repeat the same old lap of the block but struggle to make progress.
In this workshop we’ll show you how to learn from every run so that you can motivate yourself with realistic challenges which make improvements impossible to ignore.
Wednesday 23rd September: 1pm
Burning lungs is the number one obstacle to non-stop running but in this workshop you’ll set up the app which will teach you the speed you need to be running at and tell you the speed you are running at.
We’ll also explain how to tackle hills, head winds and all other factors which will effect your ability to keep running with comfortable breathing.
Wednesday 23rd September: 6.30pm
Once you’ve stopped your lungs from burning there will come a time when the muscles around your lower leg can become tight and eventually cause pain around your ankle or foot.
Book this workshop with Club Physiotherapist, Katie Foster, and Head Coach, Conor Graham, as they talk to you through strategies for preventing the tightness and addressing lower leg pains.
Areas addressed include:
-tight shins (shin splints)
-pain in the outside of your ankle
-achilles tendon pain
-arch pains under the foot
Book a Call to Get Involved!
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic we have made multiple changes to how we deliver education and personal advice with running.
Included in our Beginner's Week Events we offer the chance to attend small group club runs where you'll run with 4 people of a similar speed to you.
To ensure you are in a the right group for these club runs and understand how we as a running club have adapted to be Coronavirus compliant, we would love to speak to you over the phone.
Arrange a time to suit you below!
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!!
Transforming Belief and Ability
I have gone from being not able to run to the end of my road & thinking running is not for me, to believing in myself thanks to Conor & the fabulous members of the CRC...
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.
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!
One of the Best Clubs in Cheltenham
It is a very good club for those beginning to run whatever age you are. There is a very friendly atmosphere to encourage people to reach their goal. This is one of the best running clubs in Cheltenham.
