Extreme Energy was born in the Sahara Desert while our managing director Neil Thubron was running the Marathon Des Sables, frustrated that there were no multi-day ultra distance running events available in the UK to help MDS competitors get physically and mentally prepared.
Since we organised the 1st Druid Challenge 5 years ago we have had over 500 MDS competitors use our events to get them ready for the desert physically, test all the kit, talk to MDS vets about what works and what doesn’t, meet fellow competitors and form tent groups.
Each year we have also provided “team XNRG” T shirts to any tent groups formed at our events.
For anyone training for the MDS we have put together a special package.
What is included:
Discounted entry for 2 of our events prior to the MDS 2015
Druid Challenge, 7th – 9th November 2014 – 84 miles 3 days The Ridgeway
Pilgrim Challenge, 31st March - 1st February 2015 – 66 miles 2 days North Downs
A free XNRG buff – perfect to pull up round your face to keep out the sand
At the Druid Challenge we will also be joined by MDS super vet Rory Coleman to chat with competitors and share his experiences
Question and answers session on the Saturday evening. So you can ask one of the UKs best ultra runners, how he prepares, what he eats, and what he thinks as he takes on the challenge.
There will be other exhibitors and information available at all of our events.
Druid and Pilgrim - £245 a saving of £35 on the normal price
