Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)

For a long time I have wanted to explore Donegal, and what better way than The Race! It will be a very different sort of challenge for me, as I am more used to expeditions that last weeks or months, so I am excited and rightfully nervous about the prospect. The Race will certainly be a good motivator to keep the training steady over the winter months.

Experience

My only adventure race experience was the Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon, in Scotland, which my team-mate and I won and which gave me the motivation to try more competitive events, as opposed to expeditions. Over the past decade I have cycled around the world, the length of the Americas and recently set the Africa World Record, Cairo to Cape Town (10,800km) in 41d 10h. Outside cycling I reached 800 miles north of the Arctic Circle in an ocean rowing boat and survived capsize when attempting the mid-Atlantic WR. In the mountains I am a ski instructor and climbed a few interesting places, including Denali and Aconcagua. A few years ago I ran and swam across Scotland, which was seriously tough… I am a reluctant runner and slow swimmer, so happiest on two wheels!
