In short: Sociable and fast In full: This is a good event, fast course and sociable before during and after the race. The only criticism I have is about the finish line. I crossed what I thought was the finish line, because it had large flags either side of the path saying 'FINISH', when in fact the actual finish line was 10 - 15 metres further on. That mistake cost me 3rd place lady. I saw a couple of other runners make that mistake too. Date of review: November 27, 2012
In full: full marks to the organisers for getting the event on despite the weather,a good race for beginners but a pretty boring run for regulars.well organised event but one large problem,the course measured very long by my watch,43 seconds between 6.22 miles and my official time crossing the line,a discrepancy of some tenth of a mile!for this reason I probably would not do this event again Date of review: November 26, 2012
In short: Fast course but not so much in the rain In full: Great course. Was a shame about the weather this year as the rain was smashing down but didn't dampen the heart or spirit of the race. Date of review: August 14, 2012
In full: Despite the torrential downpour at the start of the race, thoroughly enjoyed it for the pure friendliness of the race organisers. Of course the scenery was dull, it's a race track. There were plenty of first time runners and they all got cheered in at the finish as warmly as the faster runners. Well done. Date of review: July 30, 2012
In short: The race does not have a UK Athletics licence. If had known i would not have entered In full: There is no point in running your heart out and getting a good time if this cannot be recognised on your Run Britain profile and in the national age rankings. Also, the winning team competition is based on positions 'in each category' which is not sensible and I have never seen in any other race. It is always based on race finish position irrespective of category, unless there are seperate team competions for each category. Date of review: March 1, 2012
In short: Unexpected perfect conditions.... In full: It's a race where the weather condition's can play a major part, but today with perfect condition's a lot of PB's where had....
Would like to add a special thank's to one of the guy's at the drink's station... After I had made a right mess (not once but twice) of trying to crab a drink at the beginning of the third lap, he sprinted to catch me up with a much needed drink...
Would definitly do this again, in the right condition's Date of review: February 28, 2012
In short: got bored In full: After been advised that no ipods were allowed on the race it was going to go down hill from there. Knew Castle Combe track quite well from driving round in a car which is pure thrilling, but running round it, I was bored. Its long, not the best scenery and straight with a few corners. I wouldnt do it again unless I had music to keep me entertained. But find it good if you want to set a personal best, not for beating a personal best unless you enter it again in the summer Date of review: February 27, 2012
