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.
A big thank you for a great day yesterday and congratulations on a successful first foray into one day events!
That was a superb course in beautiful countryside and I thought your team had done a very good job with the marking. It was lovely to be able to run without having to read a map or race notes.
As always, top staff on the checkpoints and back at HQ.
Let's have another one - soon!
I just wanted to say thanks very much for a brilliant weekend at Pilgrims.
Very relaxed yet well organised. And so friendly.
You'd thought through every detail of making sure everyone had a good race, was safe, well rested, feed and inspired. No mean feat!
I'll definitely do another XNRG event again.
