Stunning ancient woodland, pine forests, ponies and grassy expanses – the Pony Express is diverse countryside at its best, making this race a star in the XNRG calendar. The 60 mile circular route is evenly split into two ultra marathons over two days. As with all of our events, everything is taken care of at the Pony Express so you can focus on the experience! Overnight accommodation, evening meals, showers, breakfast, food and drink at checkpoints, free parking, and even inspiring guest speakers in the evenings are all included. The three days, fully supported including accommodation and all food is £135 at Standard Price.
Navigation and Support
The New Forest has no markings in the form of signposts or post discs however the route will be well marked with arrow signs at major direction changes with confidence tape. In addition, you will be given a route card and a map, designed to help on any tricky sections. The event is supported by a Course Manager to maintain event safety and to manage any serious incidents. A fully qualified medical crew are in attendance, to give first aid and to manage any serious medical problems in cooperation with the emergency services.
