Background (Reasons for attempting The Race)

I took part in, The Race, in 2017 and thought it a spectacular event. I had hoped to return some day and it looks like this is possible in 2019. I have raced in multisport races for years with a concentration on ultramarthons in 2018. The Race is great motivation to get back out on the bike and in the kayak for the winter months. I live in the UK and a chance to race in Donegal is too good to turn down. I also finished 4th in 2017 and will enjoy trying to beat my time and maybe even hit the podium in 2019!
