In short: Amazing course, well marshalled, lots of stops and not too hilly In full: A great choice for your first Ultra. Many people just walked the hills to save energy for the rest. Took in lovely views and was really nice to catch-up with other runners doing different distances. Watch out for the wicked woods where the Mad Hatter would be at home :) Date of review: September 6, 2013
In short: Brilliant race! In full: Completed this as my first marathon. Really good organisation, frequent water stations, lovely scenic course and friendly runners. If only all events could be run like this. Date of review: August 12, 2013
In short: Well organisd (complex) event with gorgeous scenery In full: Opted for the half this year and glad I did, as I suspect I wouldn't have enjoyed any more miles... Lovely scenery, very well organised event,complicated by the multi-distance and the walk or run options. Only real niggle - perhaps some marshals through the city as it was not easy to follow the route. I nearly went off route (as I know Salisbury well) but was corrected by another runner and my wife did go wrong. Plus the lack of mile markers after 9 miles for the 21K was annoying (must be possible to put some out). Otherwise thanks for a great race. Date of review: August 12, 2013

In short: A MUST DO EVENT In full: Ludo and his team put on a great event. something for everyone, with distances from 10k up to 50k and a walk/run option on each. plus a 5k pushchair/wheelchair route. gorgeous scenery, plentiful water/feed stops (including dig bowls!) and an all round friendly race. I started 2 years ago with the 20k, last year I did the 30 and this year the 50. Ludo seems to have a weather hotline, as each year it's been perfect! I'll definitely be back next year.....but not sure at what distance :) Date of review: August 12, 2013
In short: Well organised and friendly In full: Review for 50k run.
Good course, toughish but fair. Well marshalled and signed - could be slightly better over last 5k, a small issue. Well stocked water-stations. Friendly marshals and others. A good cause Plenty of people on course, with both runners and walkers making for a good atmosphere. I recommend it, I have done 10k twice, and the marathon and 50k run - all have been good.
