Welcome to Week 14 of the 16 Week Cheltenham Running Club Programme!

“One of the best decisions I've made after struggling with anxiety and depression”

profile-pic

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!

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.

“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.

I used to run in my younger years when I was in the RAF and tried again about 6 years ago with another running club but unfortunately did not enjoy it and gave up. Having had a recommendation from a previous work colleague and friend, Tina Sawle, I joined Cheltenham Running Club in January 2019.

Age is not a barrier, nor is fitness level. I am now 57 years old and having started on the Couch to 5km programme, I successfully completed the Cheltenham Parkrun in June 2019. That was it, I was hooked and I joined the Summer Training Squad to continue my journey.

I suffered a knee injury which set me back a little and I missed the Cheltenham Challenge 10km in August. However, with the support of physio, advice from Conor and other members of the Club, I was able to build up strength and get going again. I am amazed at how much I have improved from those early days when I thought I would never run 1km without stopping never mind 10km!

I have now gained confidence and recently completed my first official 10km in the Worcester City event on 15th September.

The members of the club are so friendly and supportive, I couldn’t have done it without them.

“I joined the summer squad after chatting to CRC members and being inspired!”

profile-pic

I found the training videos, Facebook group and training plan great for keeping up motivation, plus socialising on training nights, to remind myself of individual & shared goals!

I’m glad I joined the Summer squad and have enjoyed the experience.

Being in a squad means getting a training programme to work with; but for me the most important part is giving and receiving encouragement, support and advice.

“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

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

profile-pic

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.
