I have also raced in Cairns Ski Racing Club and New South Wales series day races over the years and will continue to do.

The Sydney Bridge to Bridge is for 112klm and is held on the Hawkesbury River in Sydney.

The Southern 80 is an 80klm race and is held in Echuca.

 

The H120 is a race that you do a 60klm race down the river and then back up the river, so therefore being a 120klm race.

In 2017 I will also be racing in the New Zealand Bridge to Bridge and when I was asked to race in this I felt so excited. The New Zealand Bridge to Bridge is completely different to the Sydney Bridge to Bridge and I believe it is more challenging.

In 2018 I will be racing in the Catalina race, this is held at Catalina in the United States of America.
