THE Run For The Rock in memory of the late Paul Lucey will return once again on May Bank Holiday Monday, May 2.

This is the 4th Paul Lucey Run for the Rock, but perhaps the most significant as the importance of  exercise and friendship have been to the fore due to the pandemic over the past two years.

Organisers are hoping to encourage as many kids, teenagers, parents, grandparents, friends and family members to get outdoors and reconnect on Monday, May 2 to walk or run 5k/10k, while helping to keep them fit, healthy and promoting positivity within the community.

2018 and 2019 saw over 400 participants each year in what was an amazing community event and a fitting tribute to Paul Lucey, a proud Austin Stacks man who passed away in December 2017.

This event will begin at the entrance to Austin stacks club house at 11am. Registration is via www.eventbrite.ie by searching Paul Lucey Run of register through Austin Stacks Facebook or Twitter or on the morning of the event between 9am and 10.30am.
