COVID-19 INFORMATION

NHS Test and Trace will be in operation at this event. Participants will be required to complete a health declaration prior to arrival and to check-in where possible using the NHS COVID-19 app (available to download in advance for iOS or Android). Any information obtained will be held for 21 days after the event only and will not be used for any other purpose. Participants may not be permitted on site if they fail to follow this process, the full requirements for which will be communicated to all pre-registered participants in the week prior to the event.

One-way navigation and social distancing signage will be present on site to facilitate adherence to official guidance. Queue markers must be observed at all times and sanitisation stations used as frequently as necessary.

Participants from the same household/bubble will be permitted to start together and should arrive/start at the later of any times communicated to these participants prior to the event. Whilst running, participants should only overtake when there is enough room (at least 1m) to do so.

Once finished, participants should continue moving and follow signage and steward directions to keep the area clear for other finishers. Any post-event rewards (medal, water etc.) will be self-service (following hand-sanitisation) to ensure there is no contact amongst staff and participants.

Participants are asked to review the UKA Participant Code of Conduct prior to their arrival.

Organiser's Description

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.

 

Event merchandise is available for purchase during registration for delivery in the week leading up to the event.

 

The Family Fun Run will finish prior to the start of the main categories. Children must be aged 5 or over to participate but buggies (or similar) are permitted for children under 5. Children under 11 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
