Frome Running Festival – Sunday 18th August 2024

50 places available with Dorothy House for the Frome Running Festival!

Dorothy House is proud to partner with RunThrough, as they bring back the much loved Frome Running Festival on 18 August, 2024.

The Frome Running Festival returns this year, reinvigorated and with a new running director. The Festival will be hosting 5k, 10k and Half Marathon routes through the wonderful town and surrounding villages of Frome. All routes start and finish at the runners’ village, which will be hosted by the Old Showfield Grounds, Frome.

As charity partner for the race, Dorothy House has 50 bond places up for grabs. These can be found on the website: For any runners supporting the charity, they will receive some fantastic benefits, including a bespoke Frome runners vest or t-shirt to wear on the day. As well as this, the Hospice will have a stand in the runners’ village to welcome you when you arrive and also as you return from your run.

If you’d like to sign up to take part in the 5k, 10k or half marathon for Dorothy House, call 01225 721480, email: or for more information check out the website:

Dorothy House Hospice Care provides free, palliative and end of life care across 700 square miles, serving a population of 550,000 people in Bath & North East Somerset, and parts of Somerset and Wiltshire. Providing our services for people living with a life-limiting illness, their families and carers requires significant funds and for every £1 from the government, we have to raise £5. We do this through our fundraising work, our shops and education programmes. To assist with our fundraising efforts please contact us on or call us on T: 01225 721 480.
