A big thank you to all involved in the organisation and marshalling of The Xtreme Challenge Feb 2012; and well done to all those that took part.

Hi, I just wanted to extend my thanks to everyone at KP Events that was involved in yesterday’s Xtreme Challenge. This was my first obstacle race, I really enjoyed the course, the effort involved in laying it was obvious. The atmosphere was terrific, and the snow and ice added a whole extra dimension, it was a memorable day indeed. I will definitely be back next time! Joe Sawyer

Dear Paul, Myself and my son Dan Gibson entered the Catton Xtreme event yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Dan was very proud to have finished 29th – he is only 13 ! Kind regards, Andy Gibson

Brilliant race – one I’ll never forget. I look forward to doing more of your events, especially the half marathon. All the best, Scott Ballinger

Ran the Xtreme Challenge for the first time today and really enjoyed it. I have run The Beast and the Hellrunner in the past and thought your event was more fun. The only downside was that there were no catering facilities, a hot drink afterwards would have been welcome. A very well organised event! Fiona Hamilton

The lads from the crown in Alrewas took part and had a great time. Tough but we did it. Very well organised, we want some more! To Billy, Ken, Al, Andy, Gaz, Fearny, Heather, Tracy, well done. Look forward to next year. All the best, Steve Burr.

Can I say what a brilliant event you put on yesterday. Having only ever done road races previously I thought it was tough and challenging but well worth doing. Boy was that water cold… I will definitely be doing it again. Many Thanks, Malcolm Ward.

Wow – what a race! Am looking at the multi-coloured bruises down my legs with pride today 🙂 Thanks for a great race – really enjoyable. Many thanks to the marshals for giving up their time – not sure who was the coldest! See you next year, Jen Seager

My first ever “race” of this type and really enjoyed it. It was tough but great fun even being chest deep in water. The snow added an extra dimension, which if anything improved the event. The location was very picturesque. The only niggles I had were, nowhere near enough toilet or changing facilities and it would have been nice for a caterer to have been present. All in all a very positive experience which no doubt I will return to in 2013. John Hanson.

Great fun – I am having fun posting pictures of different bruises on Facebook – seems every time I look at my legs a new one has appeared – I am wearing them with pride! Beautiful location.
Would be great if there was a tea/coffee van available as our supporters were parched and ideally a halfway water station of some sort. Will be back next year. Heidi Elliott

Thank you KP events for putting on this event. I entered with a friend and I have never enjoyed a run more. In fact I have never done a run where there were screams of horror, joy, swearing and grunting as we all hurled ourselves up and down the course. Would love you to organise another one to try the course in the summer months. We will definitely be back next year. Thanks for the bruises! Sarah Brown

Thanks to everyone involved in making this event possible, this is the second year I have done it, last years was good but the snow and ice this year made it even more enjoyable. A big thank you goes out to all the marshalls who were so encouraging on such a freezing day. Scenery was lovely and course was brilliantly testing, everyone taking part got into the spirit of it being a fun event. Looking forward to next year. Phil Smith.

I have now ran the Fradley 10km, the Lichfield half marathon and on Sunday i ran the Xtreme Challenge and i have been very impressed with the high standard of organisation in all three events. you deserve a pat on the back and a sweetie from the jar!! Doug Hamilton

Brilliant event! The first 2 minutes when everyone was sliding back down the slope because of the snow had me in stitches. Then going in the freezing cold water knocked out any laughter I had left in me! A week later, my cuts and scrapes have almost healed over… and I feel like I want to do it all over again! Thanks to the organisers and marshalls for putting on such a fun and challenging event! D Wan.
