TAKE ON THE CLASSIC 10K
Since the beginning of the Frome Half Marathon in 2012, thousands of runners have taken on the classic 10K route. Using the first 4.8 miles of the half marathon course before you split, you'll be amongst 1000+ runners giving you the big city race experience in this beautiful town and surrounding villages. Whether you're pushing for a storming 10K personal best or making Frome your first attempt at 6.2 miles, you'll find people of all paces to keep you going as you take in the sights.
A single 10K 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.
From Frome Town Hall and the Memorial Theatre, you begin the glorious sweep downhill through the heart of Frome that 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.
