“One of the best decisions I've made after struggling with anxiety and depression”
Joining the group was one of the best decisions I've made after struggling with anxiety and depression over the last couple years.
I've been so lucky through the walking group to meet people who I now regard as some of my closest friends who I couldn't be without. It's great to get out and meet new people. It's one thing I really look forward to every week after work!
I'm no longer ashamed or embarrassed about my red face after exercise which was a major stumbling block for me when exercising with others!
“Great for all ages and abilities”
This walking group is great for all ages and abilities. It’s really well organised. I have met some really friendly people and also re-connected with an old friend I had lost touch with.
“So glad I joined”
Following a move to Cheltenham 18 months ago, I wanted to make new friendships, get fitter and explore the local area.
The walking club ticks all these boxes, everyone is so friendly, I’m feeling fitter and I’ve found some new and interesting places to walk and talk!
So glad I joined. Jean
“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.
“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!!
“Friendly People and a Good Atmosphere”
Great club, supportive and inclusive. Very good for beginner runners. Friendly people and a good atmosphere on training sessions. Would recommend to all
“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!
“Friendly club with a really proactive leadership”
Great friendly club with a really proactive leadership, I would definitely recommend them to anyone either starting a fitness regime or wanting to continue at a higher level
“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.
“Great walking group”
Great walking group with scope for all ages and levels of fitness, good communication and support from the organizers
