Race Around Ireland 2018 in aid of Laura Lynn Children's Hospice

THEY DID IT!!

Arriving back into Trim just before 7am Thursday 30th August, 4 days after setting off to cycle non-stop around Ireland. After a gruelling final night through the Wicklow Mountains Team Invictus crossed the line in 88 hours 51 minutes, with an average speed 24.51kph over 2157.5km with 22,000m of climbs!

Thank you to everyone for your support, we are all blown away. We initially set out to try and raise €20k for LauraLynn but thanks to the generosity and support from everyone we have surpassed this target and are now on track to raise closer to €30k!! We will be leaving this page open for another while in the hope we can hit €30k!

Thank you again from all of us for your generosity and support.

In August 2018 a team of 12 friends, 8 cyclists supported by 4 crew, are endeavouring to undertake the Race Around Ireland in aid of LauraLynn Children's Hospice. 


Race Around Ireland is a non-stop cycle race that people have been coming from all over the world for the last 9 years to take part in what has been listed as one of the “World’s Toughest Endurance Events“. As a team we will be aiming to complete this 2,200km challenge in less than 96hrs. 


We have decided to undertake this challenge in memory of our friend SAR Crewman Ciarán Smith who competed solo in the event numerous times and had planned on competing in this year as a stepping-stone to competing in Race Across America in 2019. Ciarán tragically passed away in March 2017 when Coastguard Helicopter Rescue 116 was lost off the west coast of Ireland. 

 

We would like to honour Ciarán’s legacy and our hope is to complete the event as a team of 8 cyclists, supported by 4 crew. The team is made up of family and colleagues of Ciarán’s and we hope to raise money for LauraLynn Children’s Hospice, a charity close to Ciarán’s heart and one he previously cycled for. We are hoping to raise €25,000 in aid of this amazing charity to support the wonderful work they do. 


 Thank you in advance from all of us for your generous donation.

Team Invictus.
