Overview

This edition of the Frome Half Marathon sees a similar course offering runners a big city race experience in this beautiful town and the surrounding villages.

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 route.

A single 13.1-mile loop takes through residential areas - where locals are out on their front lawns to give you the send-off you need - before you head 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 its thatched buildings, 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 climb brings you to the highest point of the route. From the top of the hill, the glorious sweep downhill through the heart of Frome will set your hairs on end, with goosebumps carrying you through to the football club finish line.

A superb souvenir medal awaits you, with replenishing snacks and drinks to kickstart your recovery. Grab a finisher's photo on our podium before you leave and look out for confirmation of your result as soon as you finish.

It was a very hot day and the local people all got out their garden hoses and sprayed the runners on the course. This was invaluable support and I know it is what helped me around the course.

New location much more spacious and easier to organise. Staggered starts through all the events really helped space runners out and allowed you to run at your preferred pace from the off, a massive improvement on the usual bunching at the start. Do the same next year please. Can...Read full review
