The sixth annual Honda Fun Run takes place on this Sunday morning, September 28th, from An Riocht Athletic Club. The event, which is held in aid of Oilean Beo, St John of God, Community Services here in Castleisland, will take registrations from around 9-30am and the bikers will hit the road at 11am.
The Honda Fun Run was founded by the Griffin family to commemorate their brother John who was a member of Oilean Beo and who died in August 2008.
In 2012 the Oilean Beo group lost another fond member and friend in Ballymacelligott native, Maurice Culloty.
Oilean Beo was started in 2003 in Castleisland by St. John of God, Kerry Services to provide a day service for adults with Intellectual Disabilities who live in the Sliabh Luachra area.
The run will take in its usual 80 or so mile route all over North Kerry. After leaving Castleisland the bikers will head for Abbeyfeale and onto Duagh, Listowel, Lisselton, Ballyduff, Causeway, Ballyheigue and onto Kerry Head. On the way back home they’ll make their way onto Ardfert, through Tralee and home.
The bikers will have a full mechanical back up service and the day promises to be spectacular for participants and spectators along the route. Entry fee for the Fun Run is €25 and all bikes will be welcome. Refreshments will be provided before, during and after the event.
