Just wanted to offer feedback on my 4th Pilgrims.
Lovely weekend as usual. The extra signage was very welcome as was the soup at the end!!!!
Your team as ever were amazing and the lift to the Travelodge was very kind.
For the first time ever I made it in on day 2 in the light - a massive PB
Thanks once again.
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.
The seminar was extremely helpful as were the speakers. I had not realised how emotional coming up to the barrier at the finish would be particularly as I was not even sure I would make the start line having put my back out three weeks before. I will happily recommend your seminar if I have any friends who want to take on the challenge.
