“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.
“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 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!
“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.
“Enjoying Running and Progressing Fast!”
Enjoying running much more than expected and really surprised how quickly I have been able to run longer distances over 5k. Looking forward to getting up to 10k.
“Graduated from Couch to 5k Group to Non-stop Runner in Week 2!”
I joined the clubs C25K programme as someone who had never been running. In a matter of weeks was running in the 8kph non-stop group with some great new friends! The club is excellent for self improvement & socialising
“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!
“Joined Couch to 5k in Lockdown!”
I joined CRC in lockdown 3 as I set myself the challenge of completing Couch to 5k! With the support of Conor and my fellow C25K squad members, the useful Zoom calls and training videos I did it! I'm now in the Summer Squad working my way towards 10K and love the support and encouragement of running with others now we can! Everyone in the club is super supportive and the comments you get in the Facebook group really help to motivate you. Who would have thought I would be running 3 times a week and why did I leave it until my 50s to do so!!!
“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
“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.
