TESTIMONIALS (from 2011)
I wanted to thank you on behalf of Running Free for putting on such an incredible race.
We had an amazing experience are so happy we were able to compete in such a special race. Along with the stunning scenery, the organization was topnotch.
Staffan the care you put into the race was obvious from the beginning; quick email reponses, helping us source great mountain bikes, dealing with our endless questioning regarding bivies In addition, the volunteers you were able to provide were among the nicest people I’ve ever dealt with in an international racing experience.
It was a very tough, but rewarding course and I really hope this race is a yearly event as I know our team would love to come back and give it another go. After seeing all the great pictures we know another 3 or 4 teams from Canada that also want to do it next year as well!
Anyway, I wish you two all the best until we meet again. It’s great to know there’s two solid races out there with Untamed/APEX where the organization is so dialed in and the course is built for an incredible journey for the racer.

More than 2 weeks after the end of the APEX, I would like to thank you for this amazing race. It took me days to come back down to earth… I had so much fun during these 5 days, even under the storm or snow! I also spent the longest birthday of my life, since it was on May 26th!
It was really well organized and I have been very happy to participate at this first edition.
I hope there will be plenty of others!
Sophie Tison– Team Issy Aventure 1, France
Just a note of thanks to you and your team for all the hard work you put into pulling together the first APEX AR event. You did a fabulous job and could not have picked a more ideal location, designed a more beautiful course or recruited a more dedicated bunch of volunteers.
As in any multiday event we had many, many highs and a few lows that together they will become the story of our adventure in Interlaken. The scenery was spectacular, the course very challenging and the volunteers all smiles.
I would recommend this event to anyone and will do so at every opportunity.
Wishing you many successful years of The APEX !!!

On behalf of team SportDirect.com STart (team 22) I would like to thank you (again) for the great experience, you and the whole APEXcrew, offered us. I’ve competed at several long adventure races, but never before the races were so professional organized and supported by energizing volunteers. Even for friends and family at home it was a joy (and easy) to keep in touch with our progress.

I hope you are finally caught up on your rest now that Apex is officially over !! I just wanted to thank you for putting on a great race! Your staff and volunteers were fantastic. My teammates and I had a great time and look forward to competing in another one of your races.
All of my friends and family couldn’t say enough good things about the live race coverage on your web site. Every time I race I send my family and friends the link to the race site, and every time I get back from a race everyone tells me how hard it was to follow the website. Your race was the first one that everyone was excited about. Thanks!!! It does a lot for the sport when people can follow the race.

Just wanted to thank you again for a great race.
Make sure to enjoy your successful event and we hope to be back next year!
Björn Rydvall – Team Silva Gerber, Sweden
I want to thank you and your team for giving us a fantastic experience in the beautiful Swiss Alps. Every aspect of the event was handled well, the prerace communications, the race book and preplotted maps, the spectacular course design, the live race coverage, the transition area locations, the safety plan, etc., etc. You and your volunteers worked very hard with little sleep and always had a smile and encouraging comment for the racers.
You made us feel like we’d come together from around the world to become part of a family.
All the best. I hope you are well rested now and feeling happy and proud of your successful event!

Ich hoffe, Du konntest etwas schlafen und bist langsam wieder erholt. Ich bin auch seit Dienstag wieder an der Arbeit, Beine und Füsse sind super, aber ich bin noch ziemlich müde!!
Es war ein riesen Erlebnis, habe gelitten wie nie zuvor im Sport, aber die Eindrücke waren fantastisch! Besten Dank für die super Organisation!
