In short: Can't understand why this race doesn't attract more runners. In full: This is the first event I had competed in for the second year. I enjoyed it last year, and even more this year, knocking 7 minutes off my time!
Very well organised event, extremely friendly crowd - good cross section of ages and abilities. Kids fun run makes it a day out for the whole family, so I really cannot understand why there are so few participants. Banana and t-shirt at the end was great but mars bar last year was better!
Tough course but glorious scenery makes it worth while. Steep descent for last 2k makes it a bit treacherous however.
Will definitely be back next year. Thanks also to Dave J for asking me to come on BBC wiltshire radio with him! Date of review: September 12, 2006
In short: It's certainly a challenge due to the hills, but well worth it for the fantastic scenery! In full: This is a very friendly and very well organised race. The marshalls were excellent, a t-shirt and a banana at the end make it worth the effort! This was my third time running and managed a PB, despite it being a particularly tough and challenging route.
