Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)

Have competed previously in adventure racing and trail running while living in Japan. My athletic peak reached it's pinnacle when I crawled across the line in the Marathon Des Sables, after a tough week where I was on first name terms with the two sweeper camels. Since returning to Ireland I have been busy on the organisational side of races, most notably the Hardman triathlon in Killarney and the upcoming Xterra Ireland. I can't keep excusing myself from competing by claiming to be organising the event and The Race looks ideal to get back into competing. Looking forward to racing my way around Donegal.
