The 10K & 5K Paul Lucey Memorial Run/Walk ‘Run for the Rock’, which took place in ideal weather conditions on this Bank Holiday Monday morning (7th May), was a resounding success, with over 500 competitors taking part.

Thanks to everyone involved in organizing the event, all our members who provided stewarding on the day and who did a superb job with the catering and, of course, all those who participated in the event. A fabulous occasion to remember a person who will always be in the memories of all who knew him.
