Race Description

Welcoming first-time half-marathoners, seasoned endurance runners and everyone in between you’ll find people of all paces to keep you feeling strong as you take in the sights of this charming course.

A single 13.1 mile loop takes you from Frome Town Football Club through two residential areas where locals are out on their front lawns to give you the send off you need, before you head up through the town centre. Watch out for race photographers trying to catch you at your best! As you pass through the Critchill residential area, you’ll experience its renowned hosepipe-wielding, jelly-baby-offering and impromptu-water-station-manning residents – a very welcome sight as you bank your first five miles.

Countryside lanes offer tranquil scenes as you head out to the idyllic Nunney village, with it’s thatched builings, old red phone box and an all important water and fuel station. As you head back into Frome Town Centre, the legendary Egford Hill 1 kilometre steady climb brings you to the highest point of the route – dig in, your climb time is recorded separately within your result with prizes awarded for the fastest climbers in every age category! From the top of the hill, the glorious sweep downhill through the heart of Frome will set your hairs on end, with your goosebumps carrying you through to the football club finish line.

Superb souvenir medals await you, with replenishing snacks and drinks to kickstart your recovery. Grab a finisher’s photo on our podium before you leave and watch out for confirmation of your result within hours of the race.
