In short: To all runners on the Avebury 8 In full: Marlborough Running Club recognises that there were a few runners who took a wrong turn on the course which resulted in them doing an additional 1.5 miles. We apologise for this and appreciate that this may have spoilt the enjoyment of the event for them. We will assess carefully the marshaling and signage points for future events to improve on what is a very enjoyable event for the majority.

In short: Well organised and enjoyable In full: Thanks to organisers and the excellent marshals for staging a really nice event. An event to enjoy on a Sunday morning rather than worrying about PBs Date of review: July 28, 2013
In short: What a cracker of an event In full: Thanks to all at Hogweed for staging and organising a really excellent event. Great atmosphere, superb marshals, great welcome at end with cakes and more, nice T shirt. Can't be faulted. Please keep doing it on the same day as Bath so you remain selective for the runners in the know. Date of review: March 6, 2013
In short: All aspects superb In full: What a great event. Many thanks to all the clubs along the route that manned the check points for hours on end into the cold and wet night Date of review: August 26, 2012
In short: Great run. In full: Thanks and well done to all concerned in organising this very enjoyable event. Even though there is a 21 mile long hill, it has PB potential as the hill is gently but steady. The last down hill was so long and steep my ears were popping due to the pressure change!
In short: A really nice event In full: This is a good event and has a lot of positives: friendly marshals, great location, lovely (although rather challenging with some step ups and downs) course, good starting time on a Saturday morning. There are few opportunities to improve, bit more organized at the start (use the megaphone to get the runners for each race to come forward for their start), some key points on the course would have benefited with a marshal, the floor was OK but did not really give direction, a couple of extra water stations would have been good. Overall I really enjoyed it and will return for more Date of review: October 17, 2010
