Chips????? Van????? The tragedy of being a slowbee.
But as you say fantastic event and as are all XNRG's. Also I love the way Neil trusts the participants to make their own decision re pulling out rather than going for the 'safe' option. Not just in terms of cancelling, but at an individual level. There were still a couple of entrants who'd only reached CP4 when I finished at 8.40ish. Most other events would have made them retire as soon as they had failed to make a CP cut off time, but his team were willing to wait in the cold until they'd gone through.
BBH - sorry you missed them - definitely one of the highlights of the race for me - amazing chips! Really good of the team not to force withdrawls - and that reminds me that the Marshall's need a massive shout out, I did not envy this weekend, I'd have MUCH rather be running!
Sam - was it just me being starving, but weren't those chips amazing? ha
What a great weekend
XNRG know how to put on a great event.
Anyhoo, here is my blog.
See you at the Pony Express...
Ian - I thought I recognised the name. I was on CP4 with you on Sunday. Shame I will not be able to do your Ultra as away camping & running in the New Forest that weekend.
James - another good blog.
