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 Nelson has volunteered to continue his valiant streak, by also writing this week's great report, which opens with a description of the Almosts' successes at Standish Woodland Chase. In addition, there are the regular features, including numerous parkrun details, not forgetting Allan Green who arranged to run his weekly marathon on Friday, so that he could also compete in the Standish Woodland Chase on Sunday.
