In short: Really great race In full: Very well organised. Plenty of loos and water stations. Lovely crowds. Fun hill in the middle. Very nice medal that was a bit different from the usual medals. Good value - will do again. Date of review: March 26, 2012
In short: A great race around country lanes, would recommend. In full: A lovely loop around the beautiful Wiltshire countryside on quite country lanes. A really nice race that was well marshalled so you couldn’t get lost! Toilets, two water stations, and free parking. Nice and fast, good for a PB. Date of review: September 18, 2011
In short: Well organised In full: Pros: well organised, lots of water stations, lots of toilets, nice t-shirt. Cons: difficult to overtake at the start, looping around the same roads, cost, cobbled streets.
In short: A nice race with great PB potential In full: A nice undulating race with no real hills, nice route – great PB potential. Friendly marshals and locals. A nice towel as a memento. Only problems were the parking was a bit difficult and the finish was quite narrow so overtaking at the very end was a bit tricky. Date of review: August 30, 2011
In short: Really excellent race In full: A really fantastic race! Good free parking and a well sign-posted walk to the start. A really nice undulating route with no real hills (the one at 11 miles was hardly noticeable). Great frequent water stations with friendly marshals. Really nice scenery around quite lanes with very few cars. Nice cake at the finish. Overall a really good half marathon that I would highly recommend. Date of review: August 8, 2011
In short: Great PB potential! In full: A flat, 3 and a bit circuits, of the race track. Very well organised with a really nice medal at the end. A good mix of abilities and a nice number of people taking part. Good race to get a new PB. Not much scenery to look at but a nice change to run on a race track. Good parking and there are loos (which as the last person said were really dirty). Chip with lap times was good. Would do again to try and get a better time. Date of review: July 18, 2011
In short: Quite simply a fantastic race! In full: A really good course, pretty much flat so loads of PB potential. The marshals were really great, you couldn’t get lost or take a wrong turn and they were so encouraging. The water bottles at the water stations were much better than cups. Well organised, no need to worry about traffic. Nice t-shirt. Overall a fantastic race that I would recommend. Date of review: June 13, 2011
In short: Lovely scenery. In full: A really nice race in a lovely area. The hills wern't too bad (but did have to walk up that second one). More drink stops next year would be really good as it was quite hot. Nice medal and huge bowl of bananas at the end! Date of review: May 24, 2011
