Your seminar was instrumental in focusing my mind to the task. The advice was a 'force multiplier' for me. When I arrived at the seminar I had 80% capability to complete, you supplied the 21% (or whatever the percentage), in other words without attending I would not have been prepared enough. The tips from you and the other speakers were invaluable. Especially 'the why' question, I debated this with myself for hours on the second night - mostly with the rocks which had developed faces.

Dear Brian and Neil,
Firstly, thank you organising another great challenge! I really enjoyed it, and would encourage you to put on more 1 day events. My only suggestion is to try to avoid putting this race on at the same time as the Race to the stones, as they start in the same area and there was lots of confusion at Rigsborough Station as to who was getting on to our mini bus pick up..we almost ended up with several of the Race to the Stones runners! Also, some of my friends had already booked for the other race before you announced this new I day Ultra, and would have liked to have run both (as would have I) so I suggest that next year you do try to put them on different days?
Otherwise, I would highly recommend this race to my friends.
Thanks Brian and Neil,
Karen Summerville xx
Many thanks to you and all your team for yesterday. It was a tough day, but made so much easier thanks to the warm and sincere support from all the marshalls.
