In short: A challenging race. In full: Hot and sunny morning and the 4 water stations were essential. Some tough hills to contend with but a great race. Looking forward to a faster time next year. Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: A good race with amazing scenery In full: Good points - Friendly atmosphere, amazing scenery, even better route Bad points - Marshalls could have been more attentive and assertive with marshalling; route was also short (9.62K instead of 10K). Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: freindly, well organise and well marshalled. In full: Good mildly undulating course. Starts and finishes on a track and the finish is therefore fast. Good race, friendly and efficient organisers. Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: A very well worthwhile all rounder In full: Excellent parking close to the track. Rec for the kids, Big park to play in. No queue for the toilets!! And half a dozen man traps!! Indoors!! With paper!!
Nice start and finish on the track, well marshalled although some of the trucks were a bit close.
2 water stations at 3.5K and 7K. Why doesn't everyone do this?
Knocked nearly a minute and a half off my PB.
Back next year? Definitely. Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: Another classic In full: Once again a great day out, I can only echo my comments from last year. Yes, wind and rain this time but this could not detract from the magnificent scenery and real sense of achievement of finishing. The only advice I would give to newcomers (on either course) is to leave a bit in reserve for the lengthy but scenic climb out of Avebury. Classic stuff, see you in '06. Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: A challenging race with fantastic atmosphere and BBQ! In full: The single file bridge at the start is a problem but we overcame this by running through the river as many did. Well worth the wet feet (which I didn't get as i blagged a piggy back!). The race was hard work and I felt like we went up more than we went down but that's always the way. Really had a great morning and some good BBQ at the end, we will do it again next year. Came in at 56 mins. Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: Superb! In full: Great organisation, clear Km markers, fast course, top support from crowds, excellent quality medal and t-shirt. In a word - fantastic, I'll be back next year. Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: First half and loved it -route change will make it better in 2005 In full: Running between the bridges highlight ,figures of eight round the football pitchs low point ,great way to finish at the castle but long way from start! Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: Strange to be able to see finish from quarter way through race !!! In full: Well organised ,but narrow start with this many runners need to be rethought for next year. Nice finish and good supportive crowds all the way round ,sports massage great idea had to skip mine to see fit'ba .Watch out for the Kleggs! Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: As I was saying before Bill Gate sabotaged by attempt... the first 8 miles are uphill. Great race and probably a chance of a personnel best. Bag at the end with edible stuff in as well, why hasn't anyone thought of that before. Great. In full: Why won't the year filed let me enter 2005? Date of review: May 22, 2005
