Reach new heights...
Voted one of the best events in the UK by runners in the independent Racecheck Awards in 2019 - there’s nowhere quite like Frome for an unforgettable run.
Join us in 2022 for this special 10th anniversary edition and experience the Frome finish line feeling!
Looking for a highlight half marathon? Want to take on the 10K? Or fly around the 5K? Perhaps you fancy a family fun run with the kids before the adult races get underway. It’s all here in Frome’s annual day of running and fundraising.
Welcoming first-time runners, experienced athletes, and everyone in between, you'll find people of all paces to keep you feeling strong as you take in the sights of the fabulous routes through rural, residential and town centre streets.
All courses are scenic single loops (no laps!) offering a big city race experience in this beautiful town and the surrounding villages. You'll experience the famous local support with hosepipe-wielding, jelly baby-serving residents and storm on feeling like a local warrior as you conquer some challenging climbs that make the run even more rewarding.
The final glorious mile sweeps through the town centre heart of Frome with a huge downhill curve that will set your hairs on end, with goosebumps carrying you through to the finish line.
A superb souvenir medal awaits you, with replenishing snacks and drinks to kickstart your recovery. Grab a finisher's photo in our hero’s finisher zone before you leave and look out for confirmation of your result as soon as you finish.
Creating an award-winning race experience is thanks to every volunteer, supporter and hose-pipe wielding resident along the route. Huge thanks to every resident with their applause, hosepipes, water and jelly babies; every runner with their smiles and grit through the heat of the day; and to every volunteer who made the whole thing happen.
We're the best little half marathon (and 10K, 5K and fun run) in the country, all because of you!
