Bon Courage From XNRG

The biggest week in the ultra-running calendar is here

Bon courage to all XNRGers competing out in Chamonix this week!
 
A big congratulations to those that have finished the TDS and OCC already and good luck to all the CCC (including 2 of our XNRG coaches Nathan Montague and Andy Stewart) and UTMB® competitors. 
 
Great to see so many of those that attended our UTMB® Seminar and Snowdon training weekend this year doing so well. 


If you're feeling inspired to compete next year, don't forget that you can still earn points before 2019 entries open in December 2018. The Druid Challenge in November has 3 UTMB® points.

In 2019 all our multi day events will earn you UTMB® qualifying points.
 
Here's what we've got coming up:
 

Pony Express

13 - 14th October 2018 | New Forest, Hampshire

60 miles over 2 days

Stunning ancient woodland, pine forests, ponies and grassy expanses – the Pony Express is diverse countryside at its best, making this race a star in the XNRG calendar. Get inspired as you recharge - this year we'll have Transylvania Ultra competitor David Byrnespeaking on Saturday evening. Book now >

 

Druid's Challenge

9th - 11th November 2018 | The Ridgeway (Bucks - Berks)

84 miles over 3 days

A three-day ultra along the oldest road in the UK, the Ridgeway. Feed stations, overnight accommodation, meals and excellent guest speakers are all included. This year, we'll have Rory Coleman on '20 years of the MDS', as well as Emily Denham and Maritsa Harrington who will be giving 'a girl's guide to the MDS'. One not to miss! Book now >

 

Pilgrim Challenge

2nd - 3rd February 2019 | North Downs Way

66 miles over 2 days

Come and celebrate our 10th anniversary with an extra-special Pilgrim Challenge. One of our best-loved events, it follows the North Downs trail. ‘Downs’ is, in fact, an ancient word for ‘hill’ - appropriate, with over 1,000 metres of climbing in store! This year, we're pleased to welcome Steve Diederich - the UK organiser of the Marathon Des Sables - and our very own Susie Chan as the evening speakers, leaving you inspired and fired up. Book now >


Entry has also just opened for the 2019 Devil's Challenge (4-6th May) - book before 30th September to save with our early bird.


Watch this space: we'll be opening booking for the next UTMB® seminar day (2nd March) and Snowdon training weekend (7-9th June) very soon.
