If you've been running alone then you're aware the conditions are changing. 


Street lighting can't be everywhere and darkness just makes a run less appealing if not a little scary. 


Autumn leaves are settling now and combined with rain can lead to dangerous conditions. 


Running events are few and far between so it can be hard to motivate yourself. 

How Our Runs Can Help

Stay Accountable to Friends

Getting your club runs in the calendar increases the chance you'll get out of the house and off for regular runs. 

You'll soon get to know members who run at your speed and motivate one another to take on the challenges set by your coach. 

Keeping You Safe

Most of our runners carry a phone so help is never far away.  

Running with friends means you'll have less risk of falls thanks to verbal warnings and torches lighting any dark patches on the footpaths. 

Where and When?

Tuesday Evening Intervals

Interval Training can be hard to get motivated for alone but with a group it's ace! 

Meet at the Prestbury Road Playing Field for a 6:30pm or 6:40pm start, depending on group.

Thursday Evening Group Run

This 35-45 minute group run around the streets of Cheltenham beats the lone alternative, hands down.

Big Improvements After Just 6 Weeks

I’ve been running with CRC for 6 weeks and love the mix of people that come along. There are different running groups for different abilities and a good mix of training sessions and runs. I’m seeing a big improvement in my general fitness and enjoying my running again.

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.

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.

Back from 2 years out of Running to Crush the Cheltenham Half Marathon

I wanted to get back into running after a break of 2 years. I set myself the Cheltenham half marathon in Oct as my target. The club got me going again and they are so welcoming and inclusive. Conor gives great advice. I thoroughly recommend the club and am constantly telling friends about it.

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.
