Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)

I competed in the inaugural event in 2014 finishing in 5th place. I guess like a lot of people The Race took me by surprise, and not everything went my way on the day, but the overall experience is one that I will never forget and I think I learned a lot about myself on the day and it has made me a more resilient person. Since then my partner and I have welcomed our daughter Emma into the world so my time for training has reduced but even with fitting in more family time I'm hoping that I can improve on my time from 2014. I'm also leading a team of friends from GoTri Adventure into the race so I'm looking forward to the camaraderie and banter during the training and for the race itself. This will be by far the biggest challenge our group will have faced to date and we'll be preparing as best we can to get every single one of us over the line. GoTri Adventure was born from a philosophy that people are capable of a lot more than they think if they can just shrug off the shackles and go for it and where better for us to embody that than at The Race!.

Experience

Numerous multisport one day adventure races, marathons, ultramarathons, The Race 2014.
