Scroll down for more details...


Our next Beginners Intake is Starting From the 21st of September!

“ANYONE CAN RUN” but some don’t realise how fun and pain free it can be until they seek help with it. 

During Beginner’s Week we’ll show you how to pace yourself so you don’t burn out too fast or cause injury.

We’ll support you with online education, coaching advice, inspirational stories and a bunch of new friends who want you to succeed. Join in small group club runs which help you prioritise your runs, gain coach guidance and member support. 

Our Events!

How to Crush 5k of Non-Stop Running

Monday 21st September: 1pm

Are you struggling to build up your distance of running non-stop?

In this presentation you’ll learn the strategies we implement with members of our online Couch to 5k Squad.

How to tackle hills

How to stop burning lungs

How to stop cramping lower legs or jelly thighs

We’ll cover it all and answer your questions too!

How To Set Running Challenge

Monday 21st September: 6.30pm

Did you know the benefits of running happen between your runs?

Most people set out for runs without a realistic target to aim for. Others set their sights too low and repeat the same old lap of the block but struggle to make progress.

In this workshop we’ll show you how to learn from every run so that you can motivate yourself with realistic challenges which make improvements impossible to ignore.

How To Stop Lungs Burns

Wednesday 23rd September: 1pm

Burning lungs is the number one obstacle to non-stop running but in this workshop you’ll set up the app which will teach you the speed you need to be running at and tell you the speed you are running at.

We’ll also explain how to tackle hills, head winds and all other factors which will effect your ability to keep running with comfortable breathing.

How To Stop Lower Legs Seizing Up

Wednesday 23rd September: 6.30pm

Once you’ve stopped your lungs from burning there will come a time when the muscles around your lower leg can become tight and eventually cause pain around your ankle or foot.

Book this workshop with Club Physiotherapist, Katie Foster, and Head Coach, Conor Graham, as they talk to you through strategies for preventing the tightness and addressing lower leg pains.

Areas addressed include: 

-tight shins (shin splints)

-pain in the outside of your ankle

-achilles tendon pain

-arch pains under the foot

Book a Call to Get Involved!

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic we have made multiple changes to how we deliver education and personal advice with running.

Included in our Beginner's Week Events we offer the chance to attend small group club runs where you'll run with 4 people of a similar speed to you.

To ensure you are in a the right group for these club runs and understand how we as a running club have adapted to be Coronavirus compliant, we would love to speak to you over the phone.

Arrange a time to suit you below!


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.

Truly a Great Club to be a Part of

I started January 2017 with my son, its the best thing we did. I am very grateful to Conor and the members for all their help and support. Truly a great club to be a part of.

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

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.

Couch to 5k Success

Learning about pacing and intervals has completely changed the way I run. I know it is important to run the best way for me and to not compare my journey to anyone else's. I would like to thank Conor and the members of the club for their continued support, I couldn't do this without you!!

Emily Woods Couch to 5k and Straight to Half Marathon

Trepidation Be Gone

I started with some trepidation as a couch potato in Jan 2017 and by the end of March I had done my first Park Run (5km).

I continued running throughout 2017 as a stress buster and the club coach, Conor Graham, helped me with my technique and stamina.

Now at the beginning of 2018 I am working towards my first Half Marathon. Completely unbelievable and I would have given up a long time ago without Cheltenham Running Club.

Highly recommended.
