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.
Thanks for organising an amazing weekend, I loved it.
Just a quick note to say thank you for organising a brilliant day at the Chiltern Challenge.
I have done quite a few races and this was one of the best organised.
The check points were well stocked and the Marshalls were brilliant. It was so nice to have people offering to fill water bottles, especially towards the end of the race when I was getting tired and the simplest of tasks takes a lot of energy.
THIS WAS ALSO THE BEST MARKED COURSE I'VE RUN - AND THAT'S SO REASSURING IN A LONG RACE.
