In short: Great race, glorious morning, correct the mistakes next time. In full: Did anybody see those two fellas ferreting just after the waterstop? Right hand side of the track, white van, albino ferrets. Fantastic. Aaahh, Sunday mornings on the Plain, I lov'em. Date of review: November 7, 2007
In short: Great charity run, shocking route measurment for army but everything else was fine. In full: This has got the potential to be one of the hardest 10km races in the UK and if the 'Plain' was made easier to get to (from the start) there is no reason why this could not be a championship race. However, its how much hoop jumping that the organisors are willing to put with that will probably keep this just as a great charity 9.01km jogathon. The organisation, medal and t-shirt were the best I have seen this year for a smaller run, the organisors should be proud of them selves. Date of review: November 7, 2007
In short: A great race and well organised In full: A great race and very well organised and a fantastic atmosphere.Hilly in places but not a ball breaker. One waterstop halfway but huge wastage with giving out full water bottles rather than disposable cups. The dog tag medals for all finishers was a nice touch. I would definately do it again.

In short: Short last year, still short this year! In full: It was a nice run last year and again a nice run this year, howeve I'd hoped they'd of got there course measurements correct this year, and when seeing they'd changed the route I thought they had, but it still came up over 1/2 a mile short! Still it's for a good cause and I'll be back next year! ;o) Date of review: November 5, 2007
In short: I like a challenge ! In full: Lovely day, and raising money for a good cause.
However as has been said, the toilets were a joke, and i thought something was up when i looked at my time. The Land Rover drove the course (doesn't it have a trip meter).
Hearing a tank driving around motivates you somewhat. The hills are a good test. So in short a good race with some room for improvement. However i will be back next year. Date of review: November 5, 2007
In short: Enjoyable run, shame about the short distance In full: I really enjoyed the run itself but was a bit disappointed that it was less than 10k. Obviously the toilets and delayed start were a bit an issue, but I hope the event raised lots of money for the Stars Appeal :) Date of review: November 5, 2007
In short: Distance wrong, how can the major race details be wrong! In full: Enjoyed being out on the course but totally gutted it was very short and no distance markers going around. Most important detail for a runner is how far am I running and for the army to get this wrong is worrying. Much better runs on offer Date of review: November 5, 2007
