Just wanted to drop you a line with a huge THANK YOU following my first Ultra experience at yesterday’s Pony Express from Brockenhurst to Moyle Court. I found the whole event a total inspiration - the warmth and help by everyone from the XNRG team through the marshalls and other helpers down to the other competitors themselves who were helpful, knowledgeable and extremely friendly towards a newbie ultra-marathoner. I loved every minute of it (despite the pain!). In particular, the atmosphere was one of a welcoming family of like-minded individuals united by a greater love for their sport rather than who’s got what kit. A truly awesome group of people. My certificate of my first Ultra is proudly on my fridge!
Needless to say, this won’t be my last event with you guys…I’ll be back for more.
Thanks again, and hope today was also a great success.
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.
The event was amazing, fantastic, superb, brilliant and a complete and utter joy to take part in.
Congratulations to the organisers and to everyone involved. Every time we passed a food station myself and a buddy remarked how cold the marshals and volunteers must have been! A special thanks to them.
I was delighted I got to participate in the event. Thank you so much for a truly wonderful and memorable experience. It ranks way up there.
