Name: Brian Murray
Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)
I am currently a member of the Irish Defence Force and have been for the past 9 years. I have years of experience working in rough terrain in very difficult conditions over long distances. I am highly motivated and love a good physical challenge. This race caught my attention straight away.
During my working day I am lucky enough to have time to train for such an event and am very excited with the thought of taking it on. My reason for applying is the goal ahead, and the feeling of satisfaction when/if completed.
