A group of 8 from Lucan Harriers Fit4life travelled to the beautiful County of Mayo to take on the Ceide Fields Half Marathon + 10k. Report back is the event is very well organised and highly recommended. Both runs take in beautiful scenery along the Atlantic Way with the half marathon route taking you right up to the famous Downpatrick Head Sea Stack. A few challenging hills on each route but lots of local friendly support along the way and no shortage of tea + cakes to help you forget! Well done ladies.

The committee and members wish to extend their sincere sympathies to John Murphy on the death of his brother Peter Murphy (RIP). Our thoughts are with John and the family at this very sad time.

Fund Raising – Bank Holiday Weekend
We have our Scramble on the Bank Holiday Monday and our bric-a-brac will be held over the Sunday and Monday together with raffles and lots of surprises. Our charity this year is for young Alex Ennis - son of our very own Ciaran Ennis. Over this weekend we hope to raise enough funds to purchase a specialised wheelchair which will help improve Alex’s life. We have music on the Saturday night 26th October so please support this very worthy charity.

The following weekend 2nd and 3rd November we have an Open Scramble Competition which will also be part of our Charity Weekend Fund.
