The organising Committee are constantly review the administration aspect of the Event and as this year will adopt an early bird approach to registration which means that all entries received prior to 1/1/16 will be at this years entrance fees. We have not increased the entance fees since the instigation of the event in 2012 and with the continual support of our sponsors and runners we do hope that there will be no increase in cost this year, but at this time this is under review.
The 2016 race is now open for registration using the Register on-line link on this page or using the manual entry.

Frome Activities and Sports Trust
From 2014, the Frome Half Marathon will begin to raise money for the Frome Activities and Sports Trust (FAST). This new initiative, still in its early days, aims to provide a community resource for any activity or sports group in the town, to use as a meeting point, club headquarters or for the storage of kit. FAST will look to support the whole community, providing facilities for sports and activity groups of all ages and backgrounds. In addition, the Frome Half Marathon will make donations to other local charitable causes.
The 2012 Frome Half Marathon &10k race was one of the biggest participating events in Frome's sporting calendar, with Frome Town centre landmarks and roads lined with enthusiastic spectators to support all the runners. W alsoe have a 5K race that has been designed for juniors as well as older runners.
