The Herepath Half is a multi-terrain race, organised by Taunton's Running Forever Running Club and will be run for the fifth time on Sunday 29th October 2017 at 10.30am.
The route generally follows the Staple Fitzpaine Herepath Trail in the Blackdown Hills and is approximately 13.7 miles long. The trail reaches the highest point in the Blackdowns with fabulous views.
Herepaths were originally important trade and communication routes between settlements during the ninth century - they are often referred to as people's paths.
Each finisher will receive a memento and there will be trophies for the first male and female runners. The first male and female runners to break the course record (1:28:56 and 1:40:32 respectively) will receive a cash prize of £25.
The race is being run in conjunction with Thurlbear Primary School and the entry fee includes a donation to the school PTA. Limited parking, baggage storage and toilets at the school. Refreshments available for a donation.
This year the race is included in the Somerset Series.
