A happy runner at Frome Half Marathon

Frome Half Marathon, 10K, 5K & 1K Family Run

The Frome Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and 1K Family Fun Run return for the sixth year on Sunday 15 July and promise to be more exciting than ever!

Over 1,000 people of all ages will gather to conquer the miles of beautiful race route through Frome town centre and the villages of Nunney and Whatley.

Described by The Times as one of the best places to live in the UK, Frome offers the charm of an old market town with super-cool vintage stores, alongside rolling roads through spectacular countryside.

Last year’s event saw more than 1,150 entries with an extraordinary new course record set by international British athlete Andrew Davies, who completed the half marathon course in 1 :08:30. With an ever growing field turning out to experience the super-friendly event, more records are expected in 2018.

Richard Parr, of the event managers The Race Organiser said:

“Frome really is a brilliant place to run. The entire community gets behind the event, from volunteering, to building impromptu support stations on front lawns, leading training groups for new runners and raising money for such important causes.

"Each year, it continues to cement its position as the best little half marathon in the UK.”

£9 for the 5K, £14 for the 10K or £19.50 for the half marathon.
