I'm coming to The Race primarily as a triathlete. My first triathlon was a charity event in 2007. After almost eight years focused mainly on triathlon I figured a new challenge was in order for 2015. I helped marshal the 2014 edition of The Race and while I enjoyed cheering everyone on, I was also mildly jealous seeing everyone taking on the challenge. The experience intrigued me so much that since then i have been hoping a 2015 edition would be announced! The longest races I've completed to date have all been middle distance triathlons and just three marathons so there will be a steep learning curve to get through over the coming winter in advance of next March.
I've completed numerous sprint, olympic and middle distance triathlons, three marathons and numerous shorter road events.
