In short: Great race over varied challenging terrain, would like to see timing In full: Great course, well marshalled and organised. Lack of timing will put off many serious runners and sense of anticlimax afterwards with no results. Challenging course can be weather affected so tricky for the unprepared first timer, but very rewarding to complete. Date of review: November 8, 2010
In short: Well organised and for a good cause, but a bit cheeky in places. In full: Event was well organised with a large field. Course was a mix of road and tank tracks across Salisbury Plain, taking in the painful parts of Sibury Hill (I'd forgotten how steep it was until I saw it again).
All in all a good event but with 1 minor bugbear. The group warm up about 3 minutes before the start was completely pointless. Everyone was sandwiched together with no room to move and the PTI should have know better with the lack of time shown to the "warm up". Luckly most people had carried out there own warm up prior.

In short: My first ever 10k race In full: This was my first ever 10k race. It was hard and hilly for the 1st 5k but then it was all down hill. The army organisation was brilliant and they were very friendly giving me support when i needed it. See you next year ! Date of review: November 7, 2010
In short: Friendly, well organised and tough enough. In full: Army organised to pretty sharp, friendly and fun to do. Been 4 times now and like it very much. Tough-ish track with one big climb and a few sharp ones, not great for best times especially when muddy but well worth a go. Date of review: November 2, 2009

In short: Wet 'n Wild In full: Great event, well organised and very good value for money. Good marshalling and encouragement. A little frustrated by the length of the speeches/warm up given the weather conditions - was colder by the end of it than was ideal! Timings/placings next year would be welcome. Overall a really good challenge and looking forward to next year! Date of review: November 2, 2009
