After registering your interest you'll be invited to come and trial the different types of sessions we run.

If you've been running alone then you're aware the conditions are changing. 

Dark

Street lighting can't be everywhere and darkness just makes a run less appealing if not a little scary. 

Slippery

Autumn leaves are settling now and combined with rain can lead to dangerous conditions. 

Demotivating

Running events are few and far between so it can be hard to motivate yourself. 

How Our Runs Can Help

Stay Accountable to Friends

Getting your club runs in the calendar increases the chance you'll get out of the house and off for regular runs. 

You'll soon get to know members who run at your speed and motivate one another to take on the challenges set by your coach. 

Keeping You Safe

Most of our runners carry a phone so help is never far away.  

Running with friends means you'll have less risk of falls thanks to verbal warnings and torches lighting any dark patches on the footpaths. 

Where and When?

Tuesday Evening Intervals

Interval Training can be hard to get motivated for alone but with a group it's ace! 

Meet at the Prestbury Road Playing Field for a 6:30pm or 6:40pm start, depending on group. 

Head or chest torches are highly recommended

Thursday Evening Group Run

This 35-45 minute group run around the streets of Cheltenham beats the lone alternative, hands down. 

Meet at the Hewlett Arms for a 6:30pm or 6:40pm start, depending on group

Tuesday Lunchtime Intervals

Interval Training in your lunchbreak! 

What better way to break up your day than a fun and fast track session with friends. 

Meet at the Prestbury Road Playing Field for a 12:10pm. 

Thursday Lunchtime Hill Reps

Hill reps are great for improving your ability to tackle hills and headwinds.  

You'll arrive back at the desk raring to crush any task.

Meet at the Royal Oak in Prestbury for a 12:10pm start.

Big Improvements After Just 6 Weeks

I’ve been running with CRC for 6 weeks and love the mix of people that come along. There are different running groups for different abilities and a good mix of training sessions and runs. I’m seeing a big improvement in my general fitness and enjoying my running again.

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.

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.

"improving my speed and endurance in a careful and gradual way..."

I highly recommend Conor's training squads. I've been a keen occasional runner for a few years, and had run a few 10ks and half marathons.

This year I was determined to get some structure in my training and see what I could achieve at the Cheltenham Half with a proper training plan. I hadn't done much training in the months before joining Conor's programme and was pretty unfit.

I've found the structure of the training plan to be excellent in improving my speed and endurance in a careful and gradual way over several months, without risking the injuries I've had in the past when I've suddenly increased mileages.

The combination of the interval runs with their lung-busting fast kilometers, good paced tempo runs and sensibly paced long runs has transformed my fitness. The improvement in performance has been really good too - I'm running 18ks at a faster pace than I ran a 5k at the start of the programme, and have beaten my 10k pb from several years ago.

What I find amazing is that I now think of going out for a 10k as a short run! Being part of a squad really helps with motivation too, when you might otherwise find an excuse not to go out for that long run in the British rain or holiday heat, and Conor's support and advice has been great as well.

I'm looking forward to the Cheltenham Half, and continuing to get much more out of my running.

New Member Success

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.
