Female Competitors 2017

2017 will be the first year we have more than 10 female competitors taking on The Race. We caught up with two competitors Sharon Black and Rachel Nolan to get their thoughts ahead of the event.


Sharon Black


1.You first heard about The Race in 2014 and thought it sounded mental and questioned how people could complete it. 3 years down the line and you're a competitor. What do you think is the biggest reason for your mindset change ?

Yes that's exactly correct! I remember thinking it was a huge ask of your body to complete this race distance in 24 hours. However,  having spoken to a few of the competitors after the first year I started to believe that anything is possible when you break it all down and remain headstrong. I have wanted to do it since but other things just got in the way so when the second round for 2017 opened in early April 2016 I bit the bullet and applied. I like a good challenge and this event certainly ticks all the boxes...
