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.
May I firstly say what a fantastic weekend my wife Caroline, friend Sarah and I had. We all did far better than any of us thought possible. However due to the great company, organisation and hospitality we came away from the event more than happy, thank you.
I was concerned when I realised I was starting in the elite group as I really felt that there was no way my standard of running would warrant such a starting position, not having done a back to back event before I wondered whether I would actually complete it. However my only failing was probably not to have a bit more faith in my ability, as despite getting lost on day1 I managed to finish the day in 15th place overall. Day2 seemed to be a much better day for me by not getting lost and managing to start a bit steadier and maintain a more even pace.
I thank you for forwarding the results so quickly as I can only imagine how difficult it must be to compile them with it being a 2 day event.
I'd like to thank you and all the team for simply, a great event. The first class organisation and communication, stunning route and of course the fab weather, ensured I had a great time. Most importantly, please pass my best wishes on to all the marshalls/volunteers whom without, these events wouldn't be as much fun as they are.
Other commitments meant only being able to sign up for the first day this year...but I will definitely be on board for a future XNRG multi-day event.
