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.
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 it’s 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.
Thank you so much for the Chiltern Ultra Challenge today. Please repeat the event next year of organisation, marking and the check points. Your 'people' are amazing and the ethos encourages the nicest bunch of runners I've ever met. An unforgettable day-thank you so much.
