Races are a great way to test your limits and fitness without the risks of solo ventures.  Personally, they have a way of getting my adventure hungry and indecisive brain focused.  A list that is likely to grow and help me raise my fitness in preparation for 2019's #ProjectBigSwim

All of 2018's races and adventures are dedicated to the memory of my step-father Martin Hardy, who passed away unexpectedly in October, 2017.  The cause of his death was cancer so it seems appropriate to use each of the races and adventures I complete to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
