Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)

I want to challenge myself to complete one of the most difficult endurance challenges. I’m very fortunate to train with several previous participants as part of GoTri Adventure, and I’m looking forward to training for, and competing in the event.

I was in Donegal for the 2015 race supporting a friend, and I was very impressed with how well organised and supported it was, but being there opened my eyes to how tough it will be to complete the course in the time allowed. I was inspired by the abilities of the competitors, and made up my mind to enter then and there.

Experience

I have completed a couple of half marathons, duathlons, a range of adventure races (Gaelforce, Achill ROAR, Killarney Adventure Race, Sea2Summit, Dingle Adventure Race), the Wicklow Glacier Lakes and Ballyhoura Mountain Marathons, and the Art O'Neill Challenge. On the bike, I have done many long events of 100k plus. I enjoy the longer events, but I have never done anything like “The Race”.
