We have a great community of runners in Cheltenham but they also buy into the ethos of helping people of all ability, anywhere in the world.
They're posting their experiences in our online 5-Day Challenges, supporting members of our online training squads and inspiring new and established runners with their stories.
Learning to run 5k without stopping for a breather or a stretch is unthinkable for most people who join our Couch to 5k Squads but they soon believe thanks to our cushy programme which actually get's you to 5k, not just 30 minutes.
Those pushing on from their first 5k are often quick step up to join those looking to improve their 10k time. Achieving a personal best 10k is often very simple after learning the relationship between speed and distance. Check out the free gift...
Many of our members take on a few Half Marathons each year and soon learn the importance of pacing.
Failing to set a target speed for long runs is sighted as their major lesson. Learn about building your distances safely via the link below.
That Family Feeling

Learning to run...not just learning from mistakes...
Our 5-Day Challenge, online courses, blog and Facebook Groups ensure that members can learn how to run and recover from their runs. This means less injuries, more enjoyment and faster times.

Our Beginner Runners Course is literally saving people's lives, or so they say...
Park Run in Cheltenham
Every 13 weeks we target the Park Run in Cheltenham's Pittville Park. We do this at the end of our 10 week programme so runners can push for a new personal best and Couch to 5k Runners can participate in their first organised running event.
Progressive Running Programme
Our runners progress through a 10 week programme which get gradually harder as our runners improve in ability.
The goal for each runner is to progress one pace group each time the start a new programme.
Yoga is a fantastic way to prevent the muscle tightening which leads to 90% of running injuries.
These classes are suitable for beginners to intermediate yogis and all level of running ability.
