What Premium Members Think 

Andy Sawers

One of my biggest issues is holding myself back at the beginning of the run and you've told me three or four times now to get that right and I think I'm getting the hang of that now. 

What Premium Members Think 

Jo Cormack

When I joined the Cheltenham Running Club 'Summer Squad’ in April 2019, the programme transformed my running. Not only did it have me run further, but it also gave me the confidence to enter some events.  I achieved some awesome personal bests times, something I had not even contemplated before. 


I also had a 50th birthday looming in September of that year.  I wanted to run a Half Marathon in the month of my birthday.  


The programme worked magic; I was shocked at how far I had come on in such a short space of time.


I was so dedicated to Conor’s programme, that I even managed to stick to the prescribed running on holidays abroad.

Online Expert Runner Transformation Course

You'll be enrolled in and help us decide on content for, a brand new course made just for Runners. 

There's much more to running than putting one foot in front of the other...

There's a good chance you've got to your current running ability through trial and error, with the odd YouTube video thrown in. But what if you had a process which was purpose built for getting you to the next level...


Professional runners have more time, sponsored products, a team of coaches and physical therapists but more important than any of this, they've invested years in learning how to train properly and look after themselves in between sessions. 


You may not have all the bells and whistles but you can learn and implement the strategies which can uncap your ability IF you have a process. 


This course will provide that process of learning and help you implement the ideas which will maximise your results. 

Module 1

The first module of lectures will help you become clear of what you're training for, how to use your programme and use the exercises which will ensure your body can handle the running progressions. 

Module 2

Here you'll learn everything required to ensure you know the ideal state of preparation before each run in your programme. 

Module 3

Learn what you can do during a run to prevent problems and get the exact benefits you're supposed to. 

Module 4

Ever wonder whether the training you're doing is making a difference to your running ability? This module will make progress impossible to ignore and help ensure you can learn from every run. 

Module 5

Learn how to put together a great race calendar and ensure you're able to give each event your best efforts while enjoying the occasion. 

Bonus Module

As a runner, you've no doubt experience pains and even injuries which have stopped you from running. This module will provide full scale lectures of each of the most common areas of injury.
