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. You can also download our race day guide 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 here.

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.

All runners who entered on or before Monday 8th July 2019, with UK postal addresses, will receive their race packs in the post from the 9th to the 12th of July. Please email info@fromehalfmarathon.co.uk if you haven’t received your race number by the 15th July. Entries made on or after Tuesday 8th July 2019 will be held for collection at the race.

We will reissue a new race number for collection at the race. It is not possible to re-post a race number to a different address or send a new race number by post before race day. Registration opens at 8.30am on Sunday 15 July. Collect your race number no later than 9.15am from the race hub at Frome Town FC.

BAGGAGE: We provide a secure bag store in the Frome Town Football Club which will be attended at all times by our volunteers. Items are left at your own risk.

TOILETS: There are plenty of toilets available in the Football Club, as well as portaloos around the back of the club house.

HEADPHONES: We discorage the use of headphones in while running around the course.
