Experience Some Gentle Walk/Jog Sessions in Beginners Week
All of our Couch to 5k members have now moved into non-stop running groups so we make sure this first week is very gentle for those looking to progress to 5k of non-stop running in August.
Sessions are just 25 minutes after warm up and jog periods are just 60 seconds alternating with a 2 minute walk.
Our slower group will jog at the same speed they walk to ensure the 60 seconds is achievable for all.
We keep group sizes within government guidance to ensure minimal risk.
Friendly Group Leaders
Our leaders will keep the group at a comfortable pace and ensure everyone is looked after.
Trial 3 Sessions
There's nothing to pay in Beginner's Week. Book 2-3 sessions before deciding whether to join.
Why Beginner Groups?
Thousands fail the traditional Couch to 5k plan each year because it's simply not suitable for the modern day "Couch Potato".
Many of our members have started with our tailored Couch to 5k plan and go on to run 10k, half marathon and even marathon events.
When and Where
No club sessions are compulsory and our programme works for many people who cannot any sessions with us but if you can make club runs then you'll also make new friends and learn from those who have completed the plan.
Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime and evenings from venues in Pittville and Prestbury.
Each Saturday we have countryside walks in the Cotswolds which Couch to 5k members are welcome to attend.
Sunday mornings we meet at the Pumproom in Pittville Park.
Start times depend on which group you're running with but are typically around 6:30pm weekdays, 1030am Saturdays and 9am Sundays.
Join the CRC Family
Cheltenham Running Club is not a traditional Athletics Club.
Many of our members prefer to exercise with the friends they've made than alone so joining a club makes perfect sense.
Most have been through our Couch to 5k plan so are very supportive of new members.
The first taster sessions we put on for beginners will be week of the 17th May.
You're invited to try four jog/walk sessions with our lovely group leaders as a kind of free trial before joining.
