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

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 €20,000 – the endeavour will cost us in the region of €8,000 including Race Entry Fee, Campervan Hire, Race Equipment, Fuel and Insurance. The further €12,000 we hope to raise for LauraLynn.


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

Team Invictus.
