What you need to know

The Ciderthon is a half marathon with a cider taster at every mile, where you will be earning every step of your way. In completing the Ciderthon, you will become a part of the heart of Somerset, experiencing the very best cider from the very best producers. You will be introduced to a community of people who work hard, play hard, and run damn hard too. And as a team, you will do whatever it takes to get yourself, and others, to the finish line.

Race Number
You will need to collect your race number on the day to be allowed to participate. To collect your number you will need:

Collect them at the registration tents. We will give you safety pins to your numbers to yourself, please make sure your fancy dress outfit has somewhere for your number to be visible. The number must not be cut or altered in any way to reduce its size. It is your key to obtaining cider at each stop! Without it you will not get a medal or be able to retrieve your bag.

Anyone is free to access our Ciderthon Village at the start/finish on Longrun Meadow for bars, music and more!

Cider and Water Stops
Water will be available at every mile (but not exactly on the mile), of the run directly after the cider tasting station.
