Almost Athletes is a members only closed group

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!


Club sessions are now open without booking!!

Almost Athletes is pleased to return club sessions to the traditional 'turn up and join in' format.


Claire Hawes has authored this week's AA race report. Clicking this link will reveal the exciting events AAs participated in, including those visiting Manchester for a Marathon (which resulted in the AA Marathon Club record being broken), Half-marathon or Relay Marathon, the South West for Atlantic Coast Challenge and Exe to Axe, plus Tredegar and Silverstone for half marathons. And this is only part of the list which includes 10ks, Mud Run, Duathlon and of course many parkruns, including one in which Claire was first in her category!!
