In short: Swindonia has a few hills to make it a bit more of a challenge In full: Well organised, great support under the circumstances. Pleanty of Marshalls/water/aid stations. Course a tad tight in places, especially 7-9 miles. Wellorganised at the start and finish, adequate loos, good parking,good on-site activity. Bananas, curly wurlys, water and lucozade at the end, quality medal, naffish t-shirt but can't fault it for vfm and will be back. Date of review: October 12, 2009
In short: One of the best organised 1/2s in the country In full: I have run Swindon for the last 5 years. Every year the event is better organised. Bigger races like Bristol and Bath could learn alot from the swindon Team. Well done swindon Date of review: October 12, 2009
In full: ive been doing this race for the last 4 years and its never rained, but at least it wasnt windy, i think the atmosphere is getting better every year, and what great spectators staying out in that rain, goody bag could be a bit better not even a bar of chocolate. well done Swindon Date of review: October 12, 2009
In short: Great fun; very well organised; hills hurt less than I remember. In full: It's all been said below: very well organised; well marked; big thanks to supporters and marshalls who came out in dreadful weather; would be scenic but for rain and cloud! Wasn't looking forward to the hills I remembered from 2 years ago,but didn't seem too bad this year. Either better training (unlikely) or the details lost in battling the constant rain - which I can't complain about as I got a PB. Well done Swindon; I'll be back. Date of review: October 12, 2009
