Frome Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Run
Sunday July 19th 2015 10AM
The Organising committee would like to thank all our sponsors, marshalls, helpers and of course all runners who supported and made this years race another astounding success. The total number of patricipants far exceed the past two years causing the race entries to be closed earlier than scheduled. Whilst from an organisation point of view it was a great response it did amount to many applicants being disappointed. With this in mind the committee will make application for the race numbers to be increased for next year.
Results can be seen Here or on the results page of the web site
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 1/1/15 will be at this years entrance fees. We do hope that there will be no increase in cost but at this time this is under review.
The 2015 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. This year we have added a 5K race that has been designed for for juniors as well as older runners.
