The 50 miler runs from Frome to Uphill on the East and then the West Mendip Way. The 30 miler runs from Wells to Uphill on the West Mendip Way.
'The Mendip Way has to be one of the South-West's best kept secrets. Like the Cotswolds' slightly more streetwise, alternative cousin, the Mendip Way features the spectacular Ebbor and Cheddar Gorges, the brutal climb up to Crook's Peak, incredible views over the Somerset Levels and to the circular Cheddar Reservoir, and then England's smallest city, Wells, with its magnificent cathedral'.
3.5 - 14 miles
This unique event is a must for all multi - terrain runners. Many competitors return regularly to try and better their performance or just beat that train while others have run nearly every year since the races started.

MULTI TERRAIN - tarmac & canal paths
ROAD - something a bit different from your average 'run-of-the-mill' city half marathon: stunning views, sea air, scenic country lanes and villages and the opportunity to participate in a unique running event on a closed motorway and across the iconic Severn Bridge.
MULTI TERRAIN - A cracking route that showcases rural Somerset/Dorset at their best, and although hilly in places and the ground occasionally uneven you will be running through such quaint landscapes that it won't matter so much! The route is based on one taken by six villagers who went to join the Monmouth Rebellion in 1685, so you will literally be running through history!
Nailsea Running Club

Event now sold out!
MULTI TERRAIN - constantly changing terrain, switching from steep metalled roads to flat tracks behind Gwernan lake, pitched steps up the Pony Path, and picking your way among the boulder fields on the final ascent........and then you've got to do it all in reverse!
OFF ROAD - Ok, so you like hills? Well here's a race that will take you to the top of some of the highest ones Somerset has to offer. This route will take you through a multitude of breathtaking scenes; some of Britain's highest coastal cliffs, lush ancient woodland, sweeping moorland, paths alongside fast flowing rocky rivers.
Cut off: 16 hours
OFF ROAD - Fancy a trip to the sea? Well we're afraid you'll have to run 25 miles to get there. However, they're 25 of the flattest miles you'll encounter down our neck of the woods. The next 25 are made up of coast paths, cross country trails, seaside towns and villages and a couple of slight diversions inland.
