Races summary
Here's what races are available for The Ciderthon
Route information
This Half Marathon and Forbidden Fruit 5k take place at Sheppy's Cider Farm in Taunton, across a closed road running route. The route will be mainly on the road but will also contain some grass and trail sections.
Cider (and water) stations will be available throughout this brilliant run that combines participants' love for running and cider. The cider will come from a variety of producers from around the UK. You will become a part of the heart of Somerset and join others like you who like to run hard and play hard.
Runners taking on the Half Marathon will receive 6 tasters on the course, and 6 at the finish. While 5k runners will receive 2 tasters on the course.
