After submitting the interest form you'll be invited to talk with a friendly coach who can ensure you're grouped with walkers of similar ability.
Experience Some Gentle Walk/Jog Sessions in Beginners Week
You're welcome to try up to three runs with us to decide whether our club is right for you.
Beginners Week 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.
Not so scary right?
We keep group sizes small and everything is outside so any risks are low.
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
Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime and evenings from venues in Pittville and Prestbury.
Sunday mornings we meet at the Pump Room in Pittville Park.
Attendance is strictly limited to those who book so we can't spill all the beans.
Join the CRWC Family
Cheltenham Running and Walking 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.
