In short: A nice run this, through woodland and tracks. Really friendly with a great goodie bag. In full: This is a good little event, does come out at about 6.5 miles or so, but that is better value for money and i am not complaining. I have done this one a few times now and long may it continue. Thank you to all the organisers and helpers, the smell of the bacon rolls before the start spurred me on.

In short: A good 10K, keeps you interested and a great charity.Try it next year. In full: I returned to this race after a couple of year gap, I was missing out. A great race for all the family with a 2K fun run and although I am not a fan of 2 laps I did not mind this one. Your supporters get to see plenty of you and there is enough changes under foot, twists and turns to keep you interested.
Well done to the organisers, a great cause and i for one will be back next year. Date of review: June 23, 2013
In short: I love this event, it is never the same, nature sees to that! In full: This year changes were forced apon the organisers, but it made no difference to them. They did a fantastic job yet again. I have done this event 8 times in the last 9 years and the weather is always "interesting" to say the least. Today was bittterly cold at the start and the ground was hard. As the temperture camp up it became slippery and muddy, it was great. Thank you again to Portsmouth Joggers for one of the best runs of the year. Today a special thanks to all the marshals rtc who braved the cold so that i could run. I will be back as this race really takes some beating. Date of review: February 12, 2012
In short: I have done this twice now, i love it. Try it guy's you will be amazed at what you can achieve In full: The team at VOTwo go to a lot of trouble to make everyone feel welcome at this event. The accomadation, food and organisation is excellent. Safety of all competitors is the top priority. They try their hardest to get everyone to the finish line on day 3. (of course we have to play a part in helping them by doing a bit of training etc, i am sure some only do a tiny bit!) The spirit between all the runners is fantastic, we had a great night in the pub after day 3 with many stories to tell. I will be on a high for weeks now. Thank you to Ben and the team at VOTwo, i had a fantastic weekend of running in the most beautiful of settings, even saw some of the biggest seals ever. Date of review: November 23, 2011
In short: A great event, good for spectators with things going on all day. In full: I do this as a training run as i live in the area. I think the organisers should take a big thank you from us all as they do such a good job. My only downside was from some other runners who cut the race short on the 42k and still claimed a finish position, this is not playing the game and is not welcome in our sport. This will not stop me coming back to a really friendly, well organised event that will grow and grow. Thank you again. Date of review: August 16, 2011
In short: 7 times now, says it all. I love this race In full: First half this year was very pleasent, running in the sun. Before the finish though the MVP that i love returned. Wind, rain, mud, slippery mud. Last year i said "why can i only do this one once a year". I stand by that. PJC show us all how to organise a race. They are generous in their support, medal and towel, tea, cakes and everything you can think of. I love this event and i will be back again next year. It takes a lot to make my legs ache the day after, they do today. Thank you so much for organising the Meon Valley Plod. Date of review: February 28, 2011
In short: Scenery was great, hilly first half but a good post christmas workout. In full: Everyone that organises a race for us to run deserves our thanks. This is a nice country race with fantastic views. It does have a couple of hills to keep it more than interesting and a nice cup of tea waiting at the finish. I enjoyed it very much and it has kick started my VLM training off a treat. Thank you again to all those who put themselves out so i could run on a Sunday again!
In short: I love these races, the more mud the better. I was exhausted but felt great. In full: After doing the Pembrokeshire challenge a couple of weeks ago i thought i would do this one to get me gong again. This tupe of event is such great fun and everyone should have a go. I was so tired at the end this year but i enjoyed every minute, Thanks to Mike and his team. Plenty of mud, plenty of puddles, nice and cold. My wife wonders when i will grow up, i am only 52 and all the time people organise all this mess to play in, it will be a while. i love it. Date of review: November 21, 2010
In short: Hilly, muddy, windy, fantastic views, fantastic organisation. I loved it. In full: This is tough, make no bones about it. It was my first ultra and getting out of bed on the third day was the hardest bit of the whole event. Mountain climbing, sliding on your butt, mud, wind and rain. What more can you ask for from any race. Well done VOTWO. Date of review: November 12, 2010
In short: My first real fell race, everything i have read is true In full: Thank you to the organisers of this race, you did a great job. It is not the biggest entry in the world, but i loved it. Thank you to the marshalls at the top of the fells, even in Sept it was not the nicest weather. This was such great fun, my heart and lungs were fit to burst at one point. It is a genuine fell race, the type that us from the south can only read about in books. It is what running is all about, you do not need thousands of people and goodie bags. Turn up, pin your number on and then run. At the finish you feel great because all you think and talk about is the run. Thank you all again. I am so glad i did it. Andy Gillespie. Bournemouth AC.
