In short: Great event In full: Only decided to enter on the day as I was in the area. Fabulous event, but a VERY TOUGH route especially as it was exceptionally hot. Excellent organisation, with plenty of much needed water stations. My only criticism, I missed out on a T-shirt (heading straight for the water after crossing the line), despite the organisers promising to post me one out I never did get one. Perhaps I’ll enter next year?
In short: Pretty route over undulating hills, very well organised, 5* marshals. In full: Thanks Witney Roadrunners for a well organised race over a really gorgeous course. The extra water stations were much appreciated in this hot weather, and there were lots of marshals giving encouragement at the top of the hills! Nice bright tech tee is a great memento. Was pretty near the back of the field when I'm usually in the middle, so seems quite a strong field for this one. Hope to return next year. Date of review: September 9, 2012
In short: A lovely run In full: I was a bit daunted when I first arrived at this race to find that 90% of people seemed to be affiliated with some club or other and were busy setting up their garmins. (Am not affiliated with a club and haven't run with a watch for a long time). That said, all the people who I spoke to whilst running seemed friendly enough and the marshalls were fab and there were plenty of them. The course was a bit challenging but not too bad and all on tarmac. I managed to come in in under an hour and a half but was still in the bottom 25%, so this is probably a run better suited to more experienced runners rather than beginners. Still, I had fun and would do it again! Date of review: September 12, 2011
