On your marks! Postponed Frome Half Marathon set to go ahead next month

Story posted on

RUNNERSof all abilities are warming up to take part in next month’s Frome Half Marathon.

The annual event, now in its ninth year, was scheduled to take place in July, but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The half marathon, alongside the 10k and 5k races, will now take place on Sunday 27th September – and there’s still time to enter!

All races start at the Frome Town Football Club at 10am and make their way through the streets of the town and surrounding countryside, returning through the town centre to the Frome Town football ground for the finish line.

More than 1,400 runners took part in the event last year, with hundreds of supporters lining the streets to cheer them on.

However, organisers have warned that the race is still subject to guidance from the government and England Athletics regarding  social distancing and competitive events.

Organisers say, “This event is open for entry but may be affected if current government and England Athletics guidance on ‘social distancing’ is extended. If you enter now and find this event is cancelled, or affected at a later stage – we’ll contact you to offer a free transfer or a credit note.”
