In short: Flat course, good organisation, nice medal and JAFFA CAKES!!!!! In full: Big entry of local runners with a few missing aswell so it has potential to be bigger next year, good course, well organised by grassroots team. Good facilities with parking and toliets at Swindon Karting. Lots of marshalls - thanks to them for braving the cold weather. Good course, very flat but the cold weather/wind made it hard work. Only minor point was the small finish area/gantry. Nice Jelly Babies and Jaffa Cakes. Looking forward to it next year. Date of review: November 24, 2008
In short: Very enjoyable race, will be back next year. In full: A well organised race with a very good turnout. I got a bit held up in the first Km but this might have helped as I normally set off too quick. The weather was n't great but at least the rain held off. A very good value race. I'll be back next year. Date of review: November 24, 2008
In short: Another one which I hope becomes a regular event. In full: Another excellent event from Steve Goulding and grass roots events. I hope this becomes a regular fixture on the running calendar, not least because it's on my doorstep!
Flat-ish course, however not easy to get a PB given the conditions but nothing the organisers can do about that.
Nice medal at the end, good value for money but I would say that because I got a spot prize!
Nice atmosphere, results available almost immediately and a friendly awards ceremony which included a raffle.
Great way to spend a wet and windy Sunday morning! Date of review: November 24, 2008
In short: Excellent event. Nice route and well organised. In full: I really enjoyed this race. The organisers, marshalls and racers in the event were all brilliant and made the experience a great morning. I recommend this event to anyone who wants to run a relatively flat, mildly challenging 10K, along a nice route in a friendly atmosphere. Will look to come back next year.

In short: A gentle breeze today In full: Not bad for the first running of this race. Echo others comments about clock at the end, but not that much of an issue. Good potential for a PB, the only issue today was the weather and we can't control that. Nice to have a medal at the end. See you in 2009.
In short: Great value, well attended rural gallop In full: Despite the cold and rain this was a thoroughly enjoyable race! The course is mostly flat and on roads with a short section on dirt track, so there was great potential for a fast time.
Excellent attendance in spite of the weather and a good, friendly atmosphere with the added bonus of jaffa cakes and jelly babies at the end of the race! Also a very nice medal to add to the collection.
My only gripes would be the lack of a clock on the finish line and the rather misleading event name (it was some distance away from Swindon), but otherwise a really superb event - great organisation, good attendance and a suitably fast course for late November conditions!
