In short: So flat you'd think you were in Holland... In full: ... if it wasn't for the smell of turnips (as someone described it on the message board).
Well organised apart from the finish line. My kids really enjoyed the creche and my wife enjoyed the tea and bacon sarnies afterwards - how do I tell them that not all races are that well organised and I don't always finish with a PB?
Well done to Devizes Running club. Well organised and well marshalled.
And did I mention that its really flat! Date of review: December 8, 2005
In short: Hard race a real chalenge In full: A tough race with a kiler hill twice! Forget a PB but a good race to increase your personal strength. Will definately go again. Date of review: December 8, 2005
In short: Fantastic Run for Everyone In full: What a fab day out! Didn't see anyone wearing a frown with their Santa Suits, just how it should be. This will be a definate on my calendar every year. Date of review: December 8, 2005
In short: Fantastic run and highly recommended In full: I did this for the first time last year and absolutely loved it. Doesn't matter whether you are there to race or just get into the festive spirit, it's enjoyable for all who take part. Lots of fun although quite tough in places over the Roaches.

In short: Much harder than I predicted but great fun - if you like getting wet and cold In full: Much harder than I predicted but great fun - if you like getting wet and cold that is! I thought this was an excellent event with an atmosphere to match. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day and it was epitomised by the Elvis clone who sped past me in his sideburns and shades. Definitely will do it again but PLEASE put the water station after the cargo net! Dropped my bottle in the netting and spent the rest of the race thirsty. Probably would have won if it was not for that - well that is what I told my son. Date of review: December 8, 2005
In short: flat brisk course, good support In full: fast flat course, well organised, good mix of runners & a big field make this a good race all round. but i'm biased as i'm from alsager! Date of review: December 8, 2005
In short: Great mid distance run, flat as a pancake - if you want to make the step up from 10K to half marathon then this is the run for you. Starter needed a megaphone and no cups and very little water at the end. Overall a great confidence booster. Date of review: December 7, 2005
In short: Top marks to organisers In full: Great organisation. Three lap course was much more interesting than expected. Suited me perfectly and managed 35 minutes of last marathon (buit that was Snowdonia). Will certainly return due to excellent value and good organisation. Date of review: December 7, 2005
In short: New route made it better than previous years, still some congestion but that was caused by people wanting to avoid getting wet. In full: A great race, well organised and with a good mix of terrain, don't be afraid to get wet early on cos you will be wet by the end of it anyway. Good fun, big thanks to the organisers.
