Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)

I've completed many multisport endurance events. Back in 2014 a work colleague and I read about The Race online and both of us knew we had to try it. This event offers something different, it pushes endurance limits, weather plays a major role and the course tackles many aspects of the Irish terrain. 

Experience

Prior to doing The Race 2015 I’d slogged my way around many running and multisport endurance events up to ironman. The Race 2015 was a baptism of fire for me, during which I was in quite a lot of pain and hurt everywhere. But I loved every minute of it. For The Race 2016 I increased my training, fixed a few gear mistakes, I still suffered though but had a much better race. I was unable to compete last year, I had to pull out a week prior to The Race, now I’m back looking to compete in 2018.
