RACE DAY INFORMATION
Here you can find plenty of information for Race Day. You can view the official pre-race information sent to all competitors here. If you have general questions please view our frequently asked questions page.
PARKING: Please follow signs to event parking at the Frome Cricket Club, Rodden Road, Frome, Somerset, BA11 2AH. Please don’t park on the roads around the Frome Town Football Club.
STARTING LINE/PENS: The race start is not divided into race pens as this is too complicated with three events starting at the same time. Please line up on the start line according to your ability, if you expect to be competitive in your race head to the front so you don’t get held up on the start line, if this is your first event please start a little further back.
RACE START: Please follow signs to the race start which is behind the spectator stand to the east of the football pitch. The race starts at 10am so please be in place in plenty of time. All three races start at the same time from the same place.
ROUTE INFORMATION: All three races are well signed by marshals and are run on closed roads. A lead car will lead the front runners. You can view detailed route maps on the individual event pages.
FIRST AID: We have first aid points out around the courses and in the race village. Please alert a marshall if you or any other runner is having difficulties, our first aid providers will be mobile over the whole course.
FINISH: The races all finish where they start and you will be handed a medal, goody bag and bottle of water by our finish line volunteers. First aid will be available here if you need it.
