Another great event thank you. A special thanks to the Marshall’s. Only two things to improve please- the tannoy was so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves talking - the finish line queue to collect your medals was nearly over the finish line. Will defo sign up again.

A bit hillier than I am used to, although we were warned about the 'King of the Mountain' climb. Very well organised, plenty of water points, spectators and marshals.

Second year running this race.. it’s a brutal course in term of hills but it’s such a pleasant one.. local support is great, loads of water stations, cheap to enter, easy to get to, easy to park. What’s not to love ..apart from the fact it needs at least one toilet en route somewhere ... sadly lacking in this department.Will be back next year

Well done Frome, not a bad course. Brilliant spectator support, enthusiastic marshals! Definitely not flat!
Did the 10k in 2019
The signs showing the way to the car park on the approach to the event were great. The car park was well organised and the volunteers guided you to the start of the event. Plenty of marshals available throughout the course.Well organised, lots of water stations available. The support form local residents was excellent, and the hosepipes beneficial as it was getting warm..Although there was a queue for the medals and goody bag which was starting to tailback and impact on the finishing line.

Hilly but enjoyable run, well supported by town's folk! Given the heat, starting at 10am was great. Would run again.
Did the Half Marathon in 2018
Very good race, really friendly atmosphere among the runners and supporters. Incredible route out in the country side, very different to most half marathons that are organised in cities. Very hilly course, so not a quick run but still very enjoyable if taking it at a slower pace.
