In short: Tough hills but a lovely race In full: Some cracking hills and the clay sucking at your feet makes it a great challenge. Army marshalls were fantastic if a little economic with the truth ("All downhill from here, Sir"). Some amazingly good runners here, so why no timing? - I know it's a fun run, but given how good the organisation is, it can't be that hard. Date of review: November 9, 2010
In short: Great fun event & well organised In full: Probably not the best 10k race to do as your first but only due to the challenging nature of the course. The atmosphere & cheering on by the army marshalls was excellent. Next time i might take on something a bit flatter. Thanks to all involved Date of review: November 8, 2010
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.
