My story

[p]Between June 11th and June 26th, I shall be taking part in the Race Across America (RAAM) to raise funds for Tusk.[/p][p]As a team, we will race 3000 miles, across 12 states, and climb over 170,000 vertical feet in under 9 days in what is recognised as the toughest bike race on the planet. This is going to be a series challenge, testing both physical and mental endurance throughout.[/p][p]Race Across America is one of the most respected and longest running ultra-endurance events in the world. RAAM is seen as a pinnacle of athletic achievement not only in cycling circles but the greater sporting community as well. There is no other race in the world like RAAM. There is no race that combines the distance, terrain and weather; no other event that tests a team’s spirit from beginning to end.[/p][p][b]Event Website[/b][/p][p][url=http://www.raceacrossamerica.org/]http://www.raceacrossamerica.org[/url][/p][p]I shall be rasing funds in support of the fantastic work that Tusk provide around the world. [/p][p]Tusk’s mission is to amplify the impact of progressive conservation initiatives across Africa. [/p][p]The charity has earned a reputation for providing a highly efficient solution for funding wildlife conservation programmes. They partner with the most effective local organisations, investing in their in-depth knowledge and expertise. By supporting and nurturing their conservation programmes, they help accelerate growth from an innovative idea to a scalable solution. [/p][p]For almost 30 years, they have helped pioneer an impressive range of successful conservation initiatives across more than 20 countries, increasing vital protection for over 10 million acres of land and more than 40 different threatened species. [/p][p]With your generous support, Tusk can, and will, continue to have a positive impact across Africa.[/p][p][br][/p][p]A little about me[/p][p]I have developed a passion for adventure, the great outdoors, endurance and human performance at an early age and have continued to develop my list of endeavours to date. I am a competitive runner, triathlete, swimmer and a not so competitive surfer. I have completed many marathons, ultra-marathons, long distance sea swims, ironman events; rock climbed a few walls and led various expeditions to the Himalayas. I work as the Director of IT at an independent school in Sherborne and am the Directeur sportif for the local cycling team. I currently reside on a farm in Dorset where the hills provide an epic backdrop for preparing to Race Across America.[/p][p][br][/p]
