In short: Amazing course, good atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed it. In full: Did this one last year as well, not quite so muddy this time, but just as challenging. Atmosphere on the course was great, and whole experience very invigorating. Still think that £20 for a half is a bit steep though! Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: A well organised event, with interesting (I'm a celeb get me out of here) type mud slide. In full: A nice race and made a change from all road work, good atmosphere and will be back, well done to all concerned in organising it. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Cold conditions but excellent race In full: I ran a p.b. so I thought it was a great race. Picturesque village with shops to keep the family entertained whilst I ran. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Well organised and friendly In full: Due to a mistake with the lead car, the course was about half a mile longer than it should have been... Can't say I noticed but was impressed to receive an email telling me so on the very same day. This was sent to all runners (640 plus). It felt like someone cared... Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Much fun - I was chuffed to find I'd run further than 13.1 miles! In full: Really enjoyed the race and echo others' sentiments about the great lengths (quite apt, I think) David Hollingworth has subsequently gone to to make sure we all had a pro-rated time. Friendly people and ups and downs in the course made it more interesting than the rest of the scenery might suggest. Will be back next year.
In short: A good half would recommend to friends In full: Enjoyed this one not quite a PB but only 3 mins off. I think the wind didn't help. Bag storage didn't seem very manned but I got my bag back anyway. To be honest not too bothered about lack of T-shirt as I'm much more of a medal fan and this one was a whopper!!!

In short: Very friendly folk ran, and organised this race. In full: I was just happy to hear that I hadn't done my PW by over 10 minutes! A bit of a disappointment though, all things considered. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Once you got started you soon warmed up In full: Not being a very fast runner found it very rewarding that over 5 minutes was taken off my time!!! I think the organisers did very well in letting everyone know so quickly that they had run too far and I will definitely be there next year.
I have been on so called prestigious runs paying three times as much to enter to find they have run out of water, had to walk over half a mile for your medal after the race and people have even died out there. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Windy, hilly and muddy but exelent fun definately a must for next year In full: This is the 2nd time of doing this run and this year was even better. Hills steep, windy and cold and lots of mud. Very well organised, friendly marshalls. Only complaint was queing for the stile which took 5 minutes and by then I had started to get cold. Otherwise exelent and will be back next year. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Excellent scenery, 200% enthusiasm from organisers - well done Pewsey Running Club In full: Small complaint - at the very top of the second or third hill there is a stile - unfortunately this resulted in a queue. Myself (and others) mistook people walking up the hill as being due to knackerdeness rather than queing and simply scrambled pass. All slightly embarrasing when we were accused of jumping a queue. Aplogies to anybody offended. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: generally well organized-pleasant scenery -challenging enough course-pity about arrival/departure In full: evrything good/fun/intersting/ok except getting in&out.Reminds me of comment on old peter sellers rcord,where he ran a residential centre to train aspiring pop stars- " difficult to get into, impossible to get out of " Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Great events like this make it so rewarding being a runner - its worth all those cold, damp, dark training runs. In full: Very pleasant course, and friendly but efficient feel to the whole occasion. Helped this year by ideal weather conditions. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: This was a well organised event over a challenging but interesting course. The 2 mile muddy track has to be accepted as part of the course and consequently makes it more challenging and hard (impossible) to get a PB In full: Great course over an undulating course. Well organised with very friendly and helpful marshalls. The start is some 1 mile from the finish/car park so be prepared to walk up there in the cold! This course is not one to set a PB as there is a 2/3 mile section over a dirt track which can be muddy and slippery in places. If you are prepared for that it just adds a new twist/challenge to doing the half. Very glad I decided to to this while over from Australia. Highly recommended. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: steep hills, steep hills, mud, mud, mud... and a river! In full: Hill, mud, rivers, bogs, cow pats.. but all in an excellent run in the country. What more would you want to do on a sunday morning! Great atmosphere and friendly marshalls! Bring on next year.... :-) Date of review: February 28, 2006
