In short: My local circuit - so I'm biased! In full: My local circuit - the route goes right past my house - and I like it for the mixture of road, farm track and footpath.
One footpath section is a bit tricky and can be slippery when its wet (and it has been most times the race has run) but you wouldn't want to run only on roads in this part of the countryside. Date of review: October 12, 2009
In short: A lovely run - great family atmosphere. In full: A lovely scenic run, flat to start, with one challenging hill at three miles, then undulating until last mile. Four separate fun runs for the kids, barbecue, beers, homemade cake and sweets stalls - fabulous! Would love to do it again. Date of review: May 20, 2009
In short: Teriffic race and a splendid day out! In full: This is the third time I've done this race and I've thoroughly enjoyed it every time. You couldn't ask for a friendlier atmosphere and the whole day leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy! The circuit itself takes in some glorious scenery and is a great mix of on and off-road and the organisation of the whole day is spot on. Well done Ramsbury! Date of review: May 19, 2009
In short: Great scenary, some small climbs, mostly rural but some parts within the town. It has poured with rain just before and it still managed to not be too muddy on the off road bits. Date of review: May 18, 2009
In short: great locals race In full: very friendly atmosphere and fairly friendly course too until 3 miles where it becomes undulating. Great selection of beer bbq, cakes and childrens races at the rec. Date of review: May 17, 2009
In short: Picture postcard scenery and well organised In full: A lovely race, very pretty course though challenging with the large hill at 3 miles. Not too crowded but a nice amount of runners. Good facilities at the recreation ground, excellent refreshments, loved the home made cakes. One for the running calendar. Date of review: May 17, 2009
In short: Fun family day out In full: Fun and friendly, with well-organised kids races and entertainment for all. The brass band starts the morning off nicely if you're there early enough and the kids love the bouncy slide, which I have to say could make 3x the money if they wanted to!
The run itself is a scenic loop along some country lanes and footpaths, with a single decent hill at the 5k mark. The downhill final mile was appreciated after that!
All in all a great day out. Date of review: July 11, 2008
In short: 2nd year I've done it & I'll be back next time too! In full: Very good race/day. One to bring the whole family along. Only slight down side was the course still being short of the advertised 5m (despite being lengthened this year)... Recommend trying this one out. Date of review: May 19, 2008
In short: Very friendly, nice route, will be back again next year. In full: Lovely atmosphere and nice cakes at the end. Couldn't hear what the lady with the loudhailer was saying at the start that seemed to take ages. Nice medal and I think getting a packet of washing powder as the "goody bag" is a first!
