Thanks for such a great event... Was a super experience for my first ultra attempt and now I'm hooked. See you soon I'm sure.
Thank you so much for an absolutely fantastic weekend at the Pilgrim Challenge. This was my first run longer than a marathon and I was nervous about the additional distance, as well as the second day. However, with such fine weather and a beautiful route, I enjoyed every single minute of it. It was extremely well organised and operated, and everyone there either supporting or running were very friendly. I confess to being slightly stiff in the legs this morning, but itís a very enjoyable feeling having spent the weekend outside! Thank you also for lending me your spare sleeping bag. I really should have checked what I was given, rather than leave it until just before bed. Thank goodness you had one available as it would have made for a more challenging night. Once again, thank you and the team very much for a first rate event. I hope to do many more with you in the future.
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.
