In short: Hard as hell, but excellent as always In full: I could offer a few choice words about the hill at halfway, but otherwise can't think of anything negative to say about this race. Steve Goulding should be very proud for organising such an excellent, friendly event. No wonder it always sells out. The race is a challenge, to say the least, and excellent training for a marathon as well as burning a few calories from Christmas! Everyone is very friendly, not least the encouraging marshals, and the home-made cakes were fab! Nice to have a coffee before and after the race! Excellent organisation and even better this year with parking right at the race HQ. Thanks to the villagers for their co-operation in making this a special day. Looking forward to next year already!
In short: Time of year guarantees a challenging, yet enjoyable, race. All abilities made to feel welcome and well organised. The whole village seems to have helped out! Novices do not need to fear taking part. Date of review: January 19, 2014
In short: Tough but brilliant. In full: First time Rough 'n' tumble and what a challenge! Thoroughly enjoyed it, the hills were insane. Mud, cold water and more mud so all in all a great course. Cake was amazing, the organisation was excellent and marshals were great! Will be back.... Date of review: January 19, 2014
In short: As many exciting twists and turns as the plot of 'Sherlock' In full: Drizzle, a cool wind and mist added to the atmosphere of this splendid romp through Wiltshire countryside. The terrain - mud! Chalky mud! Running water! frozen water! - kept things interesting, as did the runnable descents and stonking ascents. Plus cake to finish and the most efficient bag drop ever.

In short: Another excellent R and T In full: Superbly organised again. Real challenge of a race with great cakes at the end! Marshals did an excellent job -thanks to all of you! Date of review: January 17, 2014
In short: Great little race. Pure joy! In full: My second Rough 'n' Tumble - I loved it so much in 2013 that I simply had to come back to Milton Lilbourne for more. Great organisation (baggage tents were fantastic), cheerful marshals, yummy cakes (!) - faultless! The course is somewhat challenging (well, hills are plain silly), but views are great!

In short: Great race to start the year with In full: Back this year for another go at this challenging course over the back and beyond of Wiltshire. Many thanks to Milton Lilbourne village for making this a special event and supplying loads of cake & hot dogs!! It was muddy, wet and very hilly but surprisingly we ran it quicker than last year, never thought there was a PB potential but apparently there is! Well organised, especially the luggage tents...you were so efficient! No wonder this event was sold out as you can't fault anything. Date of review: January 15, 2014
