A single 13.1 mile loop takes you from Frome Town Football Club through two residential areas, before you head up through the Town centre. 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.

Countryside lanes offer tranquil scenes as you head out to the idyllic Nunney village, with its thatched builings, old red phone box and an all important water and fuel station. As you head back into Frome Town Centre, the legendary Egford Hill 1k steady climb brings you to the highest point of the route! From the top of the hill, there's a glorious sweep downhill through the heart of Frome to the Football Club finish line.

The 10k and 5k use parts of the Half Marathon course.
