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.
Firstly thank you very much for organising the Pilgrims at the weekend. My first ultra and what a great experience. All the comments I had read about your previous events were true, very well organised and extremely friendly. I also understand I won a trophy for V50 on the second day so my apologies for not being there at the prize giving but I hadn't even considered the possibility that I might have won anything, that was another first for me!
I don't usually respond to organisers after an event. I just wanted to say thanks for organising such an amazing first ultra. The race was superbly organised , well planned , Marshall ands food stops were excellent. I can assure you I will be running in your events again and recommend them to others.
Thank you and your team for making the chilterns ultra such a great run
