In short: Nice Way to Round Off The Year In full: Ran this race for the first time in 2015. Normally don't run in November due to weather, temperatures, and of course bugs! However when I ran it the weather was OK. Race assembly was at Swindon Karting, I do feel a little sorry for them as it would appear the locals do not like traffic going to and from them regardless of which road you take. If going make sure you have proper directions as there are no signposts! Race was a double loop around the lanes on the hill tops above Wroughton so the race is relatively flat. At the end of the race there is a presentation, and race numbers are drawn for some lucky person to win a pair of running shoes!
In short: Nice little race In full: My 2nd time on this event. Not great on scenery but a well organized, fun and friendly event. Very well marshalled, nice course, well supported by local runners, good for beginners and those looking for a PB. Will do again next year! Date of review: November 23, 2015
In short: Great race for first timers In full: This was our first race like this except for the Great South Run. Nice mixture of runners of all abilities so we didn't feel intimidated. Lovely course, good facilities / parking etc, great marshals giving lots of encouragement. Only disappointment was that drinks were in a plastic cup and impossible to drink while running but not sure if this is the norm for events like this! So if you overheat like me bring a water bottle! Would definitely recommend to anyone just starting off doing events. See you next year :-) Date of review: November 16, 2014

In short: Great race and a nice medal In full: This is the second time I have run this race and a second pb. It is a great mix of club runners and individuel runners slow and fast. Some people may moan about it being a two lap race but that is not a problem. A great well organised race. Date of review: November 24, 2013
