I found the seminar a huge help in enabling me to complete the TDS, so thank you very much! The best advice for me was to make my training race specific.

I would like to congratulate XNRG on a superbly well run event in the Chilterns. It was a fabulous day out in stunning countryside. Everything went like clockwork, registration, briefing and the course was marked perfectly with tape, signs and sometimes quite elaborate pictograms sprayed on the ground making the maps supplied only necessary as an overview of the route.
I find it quite mind boggling that you can plot and mark such a varied and interesting course in 31 miles of countryside, check it and then clear up afterwards. It made the entry fee worth it alone
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.
