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
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!
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.
