Why did you join Cheddar Running Club?   I never had a problem with the long weekend runs, it was the speed works where my motivation struggled.  Club sessions are ideal for this.
How has Cheddar Running Club helped you and your running?  The Club has definitely helped with my speed endurance


What would you say to anyone thinking of joining the club? It’s a small friendly club with a whole range of abilities.  Come along to a club night… its never too late to start running!
