Thanks again to you and your team for yesterday's Chiltern Challenge Ultra. It was brilliantly organised and without doubt the most enjoyable running event I have ever participated in (it was also my first ultra). I chose to leave my running watch at home and just run free - quite a liberating experience. As a road-runner I have clearly been missing out on something special all these years - I am now hooked on ultra and look forward to taking part in this event again next year!
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.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising such a fantastic day at the Chiltern Challenge on the 15th July.
It was my first ultra and I couldn't have asked for a better organised race and for any more support. All the checkpoints were very well stocked, the sign-posting was faultless (and I was nervous of getting lost!) and everybody - from the organisers to the volunteers to all the competitors - was so friendly and helpful.
You've definitely encouraged me to try another ultra and thank you again for making the race such great day out. Loved it and great value!
