Give it a Go in January

Our Club Review suggested that it's not always clear what training is on offer each week, and that some members are put off from attending club sessions as they worry that it's not for them.

Throughout January we'll be running 'Give it a go!' Every week we'll focus on a particular evening session, and popping some information up on Facebook and Twitter detailing what happens on that evening. This will include the YouTube videos linked below for a sneak peak!

Obviously training sessions happen each and every week but the focused weeks are as follows:

So why not come along and give a new session a go each week during January.

And if you are thinking of joining the club then you are welcome to try a session as well! (NB Monday sessions require £3 for PoW track, others free)

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!
