All set for the annual John Ingram Memorial run

After the success of last years 7th annual John Ingram Memorial Motorcycle Charity Run the Rathfriland Motorcycle Club are hoping once again to be welcoming a good turn out of bikes and trikes.

The run will again be held on the first Sunday of October the 5th and assembling as usual in the Coach car park, Banbridge at 2.00pm.

For all you roadside spectators who line parts of the route, please note that the run will leave the Coach car park, travel through the town centre and join the A1 and on to Newry.

From there to Rathfriland were we will be stopping briefly in the square before heading on to Hilltown, Rostrevor, Kilkeel, Newcastle, Castlewellan and ending up back in the Civic Buildings, Banbridge at approx 4.30pm.

On arrival back, the participants will be offered a much welcomed cup of tea and sandwich which is once again kindly provided by Banbridge Council in their beautiful chambers.

The Club are very grateful for the continued support and help from Banbridge District Council, especially Chairman Councillor Marie Hamilton and Councillor Elizabeth Ingram, who will be attending the start of the run to see us off.

The run has been named in memory of the late Mr John Ingram who was a past council Chairman and the Rathfriland Motorcycle Clubs Honorary President.

This event last year raised £650.00 and the Club has chosen to donate all money raised from this year’s event to The Southern Area Hospice Services, Newry.

The Club would finally like to appeal to all bikers before they hang up their leathers and park their bikes up for the winter, to attend the event, have a bit of craic and together help to raise the much needed funding that supports patients and their families in our local community at a time of great need.
