Des Tivnan (Runner)
Occupation: Carpenter/Builder (Tivnan Carpentry Ltd.)
Started off as sloth Dad 8 years ago, and after being presented with a bike for Christmas, decided it was time to get off my butt and do something! Since then, I have progressed from easy novice trails locally to the challenging Four Peaks Mountain Bike Race through the Alps. My love of cycling led me to adventure racing, which in turn fostered a great enjoyment of trail running. I have since entered many trail running events from IMRA 10km races to half marathons, none of which, will compare to the monumental challenge ahead of me in The 3 Peaks Yacht Race!
