The Herepath Half is a trail race, organised by Taunton's Running Forever Running Club and will be run for the eighth time on Sunday 30 October 2022 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 (1:28:20 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.

The race forms part of the Somerset Series, a series of mostly club-organised races across the county.
