Take part in Parkrun or do Couch to 5k

A parkrun takes place on the Old Showfield, off Rodden Road (near the practice) every Saturday at 9am. To find out more about taking part please click here. 

You might also like to do the Couch to 5k programme - which is aimed at anyone wanting to start running, even if you are a complete beginner and brand new to running. Find out more here. 


Get cycling 

If you'd like to cycle more but the hills around Frome put you off then how about hiring an e-bike? There's a scheme in Frome that lets you do just this. Find out more here.
