Thanks for a great weekend I enjoyed myself immensely, the camaraderie and willingness to help the runner’s needs at all costs was superb. Met some lovely people working alongside at the checkpoints ( a great laugh at checkpoint 4, day 2 lads !).
So just to say thanks again to the XNRG team.
Best of luck to Neil on the Yukon ultra.
Hope to see you again maybe IOW ultra or next Pilgrim.
May I firstly say what a fantastic weekend my wife Caroline, friend Sarah and I had. We all did far better than any of us thought possible. However due to the great company, organisation and hospitality we came away from the event more than happy, thank you.
I was concerned when I realised I was starting in the elite group as I really felt that there was no way my standard of running would warrant such a starting position, not having done a back to back event before I wondered whether I would actually complete it. However my only failing was probably not to have a bit more faith in my ability, as despite getting lost on day1 I managed to finish the day in 15th place overall. Day2 seemed to be a much better day for me by not getting lost and managing to start a bit steadier and maintain a more even pace.
I thank you for forwarding the results so quickly as I can only imagine how difficult it must be to compile them with it being a 2 day event.
Many thanks to you and all your team for yesterday. It was a tough day, but made so much easier thanks to the warm and sincere support from all the marshalls.
