Almost Athletes is a members only closed group

Put away the running kit and get your party clothes on - it's time to celebrate!

Our Awards and Christmas Party will be held at the Doubletree Hilton, Charlton Kings, on Saturday 14th December.  Click here to book.

Bucks Fizz, a meal with friends, a chance to applaud (or be applauded) as the winners of all this year's Race Series pick up their trophies, followed by busting some moves on the dance floor - what better way could there be to spend a Saturday night?

There will be a glass of Bucks Fizz for everyone on arrival and two bottles of wine and one of soft drink per table are included in the price. There will be a cash bar but there are also 'deals' on wine, beer and cider for groups to pre-order if they wish - email for more details if interested.

If you particularly want to sit with specific friends please also email me at above address and I'll do my best to accommodate you.

Look forward to seeing you there!

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.

Anyone is welcome to come along to our training sessions and run, regardless of age or ability - we have groups for everyone so you don't have to run alone and you won't get left behind.

We organise evening runs and weekend runs - both on and off road - and training sessions. Come along on a Wednesday night and see for yourself!

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!
