Get Active and Social with our Walking Groups

You enjoy walking but it can be tough finding people who walk when you're available, in locations which appeal and at the speed which feels right for you. 

We have the community to ensure your walks keep you discovering new places while improving your fitness and creating new friendships which stand the test of time. 

Covid Safe

We keep group sizes within government guidance to ensure minimal risk.

Friendly Members

You can make friends for life when you walk together regularly. 

Prepare to Jog

If learning to run is on your bucket list then you can get prepared with the guidance from our club coach. 

Why Walking Groups?

It's no secret that we are a Running Club but many of our members start out with our Couch to 5k programme and we've always taken pride in offering exercise for all abilities.  

Walking regularly leads to a lot of health benefits and with so many people working from home or keeping away from gyms and pools we figured those who have turned to walking may well benefit from doing it with some new friends. 

They Say


All you need to get you back on the road to fitness and happiness

I’ve only just joined this wonderful, welcoming walking club. Although I’ve only managed to walk a couple of times, I know I can go whenever I want and still be made welcome.

I decided to get fit after time spent in hospital. This club helps with all you need to get you back on the road to fitness and happiness.

Thank you for instilling me with a little confidence.

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

When and Where

We walk Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime and evenings from locations which change with the seasons. 

Each Saturday we change meeting location to allow for a countryside walk in the Cotswolds. 

Sunday mornings we meet at the Pumproom in Pittville Park.

Join the CRC Family

Cheltenham Running 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.
