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!

Latest Race Report

Dave Nelson completed his 250th parkrun, and has rounded off his celebrations by compiling a great report noting that in spite of the shorter days, many Almosts continue to train, and some even run events, at night. In addition to the regular parkrun report, Almosts have been covering a range of events covering distances up to 45km, whilst Allan Green stepped up his marathon count by running two marathons.
