But our site costs money to operate, and I need to eat.

Please consider enabling ads for our website, or making a voluntary donation. If you donate, I can turn off the ads for you for a period of time. Average donations are about £3.50 per month, so a tenner would give you three months ad free.

About The Club

Almost Athletes were formed in 1988 in response for a less serious running club. We have grown from a small club to one with 400+ members and of all abilities.
We do not have a permanent venue but run from different pubs in and around Cheltenham. We change venue very six weeks, which not only prevents us getting bored with the same route but also with the same beer!
We hold sessions most evenings (Monday through Thursday) with Wednesday evening being our main social club run. We also have a Thursday morning run and an informal Saturday morning off-road run. Many of us are also active parkrunners.
We cater for all abilities and everyone is welcome. Feel free to view our website and / or contact us at almostathletes@hotmail.com with any queries.
Happy Running!
