In short: A superb challenge. Well organised and a great atmosphere. A life experience! In full: This was a superb event. The all road route is very challenging but easy to follow as it was well signed all the way. Camp stops are great with showers, loos and good hi-carb food. There's a brew tent too! I loved this and will be back next year without doubt! It's for a great cause too. Date of review: February 14, 2011
Having read the above comments and listened to the feedback on the day I thought I would take this opportunity to clear a few matters up. Registration on the day was delayed considerably and as a result we decided to postpone the start by 1 hour. We had arranged 20 personnel to assist with run registration and had they turned up to help, we would have cleared the line very quickly and started as scheduled at 1200. Unfortunately our helpers did not arrive on the day and we were left with a very tricky issue of clearing the line as quickly as possible. Inevitably, delaying the start by 1hour did not please everyone and we decided to stagger the start so that everyone could at least start and enjoy the beautiful route around the estate. Whilst I fully appreciate the frustrations of a few of our runners, this was never advertised as a race and was purely staged because the grounds of Woburn are such a great place to run. The course was mapped out for us and we were told it was 5k. The run was NOT organised by the Army but by Project 65, a small and very well-meaning, hard-working charity and the runs were just a small part of a big family FUN day. I sincerely hope that all those who did run, enjoyed the route and scenery as that was the main point. However, I have fully taken on the other comments expressed here and if we stage the event again, I can assure you all that it will be controlled in a MUCH more efficient manner with a lot more assistance on the day.
