Richard has been inspiring club members since joining in 2015 and after a lengthy fight with cancer has now returned to club sessions.
Take a minute to read his story for a true picture of what a motivated individual can overcome with help and support.
“Friendly People and a Good Atmosphere”
Great club, supportive and inclusive. Very good for beginner runners. Friendly people and a good atmosphere on training sessions. Would recommend to all
“Off Road 10k Success”
I joined CRC to find a structure to my running. I wanted to improve my 10k time, the first race, after starting training, I knocked 3 minutes off the old time and the second race was 2 minutes quicker again. All comes down to coaching with Conor.
“You can Transform into a Runner!”
Very friendly. You don’t need to be a runner to join , as with the support of the coach and your running friends, you can be transformed into a runner. Want to walk instead? No problem join the walking group. Age isn’t a barrier either. I joined when I was well into my 60’s. Conor designs a personal training plan for you. He’s always contactable for advice .
“One of the best decisions I've made after struggling with anxiety and depression”
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!
“All club runs have been great, even that first club run”
Fantastic running club. All club runs have been great, even that first one, when I arrived I realised how supportive and friendly it was. Looking forward to another year of club runs, excellent coaching and future club social events!
“"a cohesive, supportive group feel"”
The Summer Training Squad Facebook group has been a really useful support. It’s encouraging seeing the different runs that members have posted and everyone supporting each other to congratulate after a completed run and also boost each other when the runs haven’t gone quite so well.
Conor follows up either online, by phone or in person at club runs when people have found a run difficult and he adapts individual programs when necessary.
Even though people have different individual programs due to their chosen targeted events there is still a cohesive, supportive group feel. Definitely a way of keeping people motivated to improve through the support of a friendly running community.
“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.
“Quote from a Founding Member”
I have run with CRC since day one. The attention given to the needs of runners of all abilities is spot on. Concerned not just with running but also looking after the body, be it stretching, warming up, or injury prevention - to mention a few. Conor is welcoming to everybody and encourages a team spirit and friendly club. Many friendships have been formed with runners from couch to marathon and beyond.
“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.
