How exciting is this email from England Athletics?

Dear Almost Athletes,
'You have been selected by the South West Awards panel as being recognised as either the Runner up or the Winner of the Club of the Year category. There were over 600 nominations made, read and discussed this year within the 9 regions. Your efforts and achievements have been recognised, and you have been nominated by people who already believe you are a winner and are grateful for your commitment to volunteering within our sport.'

We will find out at the end of September whether we have won - if we do win, we will go forward to the National Awards. In any event, being one of the top two clubs in the South West, and in the top 18 across the country, is a fantastic achievement. A club is only as good as its members, and this recognition is an accolade for all the support so many of our members give both to the club and to each other. A huge well done to us all!

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!
