In full: This is a glorious little run around the picturesque Pewsey Vale - even allowing for the challenging mile-long 'inclines' at miles 4 and 12!! The race organisation was marvellous, marshalls fantastic, and the four water stations more than welcome in the unexpected late summer heat. Despite having a very difficult race for health reasons, the help and support of a number of other runners got be back up and running and I can honestly say I wouldn't have finished the race without them.
What this race lacked in a finishing medal and on-route support, it more than made up for in peaceful country scenery, fun finishers' t-shirt, and a friendly post-race medal ceremony.. Complete with cake!! Date of review: August 27, 2012
In short: Managed to knock over 11 minutes off my PB, thanks for making it possible! In full: What a great race - the organisation was fab, and in particular the number and quality of the marshals was unusual and much appreciated. Brilliant quantity and spacing of water stops, and the sponges were a very welcome treat on a surprisingly warm day! It was lovely to see so many runners out, and the spectators did a good job too which is always a nice sign of community spirit. Only criticism is the entry cost, which seemed very steep for a medal, rather limp goody bag, and an unnecessary race programme. Date of review: March 28, 2011
