Welcome to Almost Athletes
Cheltenham's largest running club

We pride ourselves on being the kind of club that can help and encourage you to get the most out of your running - whether your interest is running for fun, getting fit, or training for anything from a 5K race to a marathon or even an ultra. We can help you achieve your aims.

Almost Athletes has been running since 1988, welcoming runners of all abilities and providing not only guided training runs but also a lively social calendar. With a current membership in excess of 400, Almost Athletes really is Cheltenham's biggest and friendliest running club!

Dave Chittock's report opens 2022 with Almosts making a strong showing at the Gloucestershire County Cross Country Championships under challenging conditions. As usual, various parkruns make a contribution, whilst Allan Green and Ingrid Harris ran the tough Plym Trail Marathon on Dartmoor.
