Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)

I played rugby and football for most of my life, but in 2014 I suffered a lower back/sciatica injury that had a massive impact on my ability to play sport. My professional background as a physiotherapist fortunately helped me to fully recovery. Running and cycling was a huge part of my rehab and I have been running and cycling away from all life's problems since then! So entering The Race seems like the ultimate test of running and cycling.

Experience

I have done a good few half marathons, and both Dublin and Limerick Marathons in 2016. I regularly participate in multi-sport events like Gaelforce, Sea2Summit and Quest events. On the longer side of things I have finished Coast2Coast Ireland (2 day) and City2Summit in Scotland this year.
