Welcome to Capel Cheetahs' Website
The Capel Cheetahs' running club meet on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm at The Pavilion, Capel St Mary's, Playing field.
The evening starts with notices of race results and any forthcoming races members may wish to participate in. Members are asked to 'sign out' before and then 'sign in' at the end of their run. Capel Cheetahs run a buddy system to welcome all new members to the club and ensure no one is left behind. Members are encouraged to warm up before and cool down after their run. Each month there is also a 'special' session normally involving a coached speed session.
Capel Cheetahs also host the annual Capel 5 and 1 Mile fun run.

20th November 2016- The Cheetahs run Hadleigh
Five Cheetahs braved the cold, rain and wind today for the Hadleigh 5 and 10 mile races.
The weather was wet and the course littered with puddles and mud.
In the 10 Mile race, Diane Parton lead the team home whilst also breaking
a year old Club Record over the 10 mile distance in a time of 01:27:23.
Closely followed by Helen Yellop in a time of 01:30:30, another time
that would have broken the club record had it not been for Diane's
outstanding performance. Heather Ruff was next home in her first race since finding out she will be running the London Marathon next year, in a time of 01:38:14. With Lisa Gaughan also completed the difficult course in a time of 01:50:19.
