I have been running for about seven years and competing in triathlons for the past three. I've always enjoyed taking on new challenges and this year, as I turn 40, I am looking for a new challenge. I know a couple of last year's participants and was immediately drawn by their experiences of The Race.
I have completed seven marathons, and numerous other road races, duathlons and triathlons including one iron-distance triathlon at Challenge Galway earlier this year.
