“Good course variation - Great course variation again. ”
“Definitely my favorite obstacle race! - Took part in WAR second time (did 10k in Dec and this time - 15k). There were more obstacles comparing to Dec but still the race was great and challenging. Amazing organization, good job of volunteers - no complaints. However, would agree with others regarding date and distance on medals and more water on the course since weather is getting hotter (leave bottles with every volunteer on the course). For those who ask for age category prizes: guys, 10k winner is 50yo! :)”
“Overall it was good - Maybe the organizers try to add some prices/medals/awards for age categories. The older ones cannot beat the younger guys esp when the latter have proper trainings.”
“good event - Customize the medal , inscribe on it the date as well as the distance , as 5k,10k and 15k looks identicle.
include age group awards, as spartan and OCR and many other obstacle races are already doing it , dont be the last to implement this”
“Great venue for an obstacle race! - Good, varied course! Efficient timing! Great venue with good facilities!
Serious lack of water stations - previous races have had far more.
Too many disinterested marshalls, especially on the rocky parts - unusual as in my previous 3 races here ALL of the Marshalls have been very enthusiastic and supportive. ”
“The same as WAR 14 - The race is an excellent idea in concept but there is no chance in obstacles. It is exactly the same as WAR 14. I'm not interested to participate in WAR 16 because I'm not expecting any change. Each race must have new challenges and different track.”
“Good race but not fair game - My name is Barbara Company and I did the 5km elite race.
People who sign up for Elite should not cheat nor get help. Even if there is no cash prize, the race should be done properly because some of us take it seriously. If people want to get help or skip an obstacle fine, but in another category. It is not fair for those who push hard and play fair. That would be a reason for me to not to do this race again.
Medals and trophy for podium were rather poor. Nothing mentioned either on it.
“Worth it! Tough, fun and challenging! - I really enjoyed. It was great. I registered for 15k and my watch showed almost 16k. Could be an engineering mistake anyways. Is not nice for any runner when there's much mooore km than agreed we appreciate that! Security, water stations and people cheering up was GREAT!
Things to improve:
Finisher medals looks the same for all categories, should be different I guess.
Bananas or fruits at the finished line are really needed.
Many thanks! Keep it up!! :) ”
“Great race, will be back! - Really enjoyed the race! Great to have a proper meal at the end :) Shower and toilet facilities are so good - other races should take note - this is needed after a dusty and/or muddy race. Love the medal and the t shirt. One section of the course was not marked well, which meant many people missed the monkey bars and only found out there were monkey bars after the race .
“Excellent Event - It was a great event by all means. I only have one comments about the medals are they are the same for all race distances 5, 10, 15km. I would at least recommend a different color. ”
“great day! - This was our first WAR, well organized, beautiful setting, and afun course.”
“Nice event - Well organized. Nice race and nice course.
Missed information about when to arrive etc.”
“Average - Ran out of water at one of the support stations. Food could be improved at the event. There was not enough food at the end. Providing bananas would be particularly helpful. ”
“It was amazing - Every thing was wonderful
But the brice was expensive ”
“Good challenge, not enough water! - A hard race as always, as expected when signing up. The main thing to improve was that there was only one water station on the whole 5k course, none offered prior and ‘only one’ after.
I arrived early because the premier online start times were different to the Facebook and event start times. ”
“Short but competitive - Please improve the photographs
A slide down obstacle had nails sticking out and my shorts got ripped
