The 7th annual Darragh Kenny Memorial Cycle, supported by Lecarrow Lazers and in aid of Croí, will take place on Saturday, August 17th from Lecarrow.
The cycle is organised each year by the family and friends of Darragh Kenny, who passed away suddenly in January 2013.
There will also be one other event taking place in Lecarrow in aid of Croí in the run-up to the Darragh Kenny Memorial Cycle. A darts tournament will take place in Coffey’s Pub on Saturday, August 10th. All are welcome.
The cycle will feature three different scenic routes including 40k, 80k and 150k and each will start and finish from St. John’s Community Centre in Lecarrow. The 150k route, which will take in counties Roscommon, Longford and Leitrim, will start at 10 am while the 80k will begin at 12 pm and the 40k at 2 pm. The staggered start times will allow each cyclist to rendezvous in Knockcroghery ahead of the finish.
There will be hot food and refreshments available for all participants afterwards in St. John’s Community Centre, and music will be provided by White Diamond. A raffle will also take place on the night with some great prizes up for grabs.
Entry to this year’s race costs €50 for Cycling Ireland members and €55 for non-members. There are a limited number of event jerseys still available through committee members. Register now at www.croi.ie/darragh-kenny.
