The 2015 Sir Henry Wilson Memorial Orange Hall Road Run in Loughbrickland was a run away success when it was held last year on Saturday 24 January 2015.

With over 150 tractors taking part in the run along with jeeps and a shining Scania 143 lorry, the event catered for all.

There was no doubt to all that the organisers had succeeded in their aim to hold a fun family day for the whole wider community of Loughbrickland and its surrounding areas.

Everyone was warmly welcomed into the new Loughbrickland Orange Hall after the run, which had only been opened a few months, to receive a hearty warm lunch.

Family, friends and neighbours all had a good catch up over the lunch.

The children were kept entertained on the day with the free indoor bouncy castle and a great day was had by all both young and old, according to the organisers.

The organisers would like to thank everyone who helped make the day the success that it was and to thank all those who came along to take part in the run and to watch.

This year the run will be held on Saturday 23 January 2016.

Registration for those taking part in the run will be from 10.30am with the run leaving the Loughbrickland Orange hall at 11.30am.

£10 per vehicle.

This year’s run will once again warmly welcome all types, ages and sizes of tractors, lorries and jeeps to Loughbrickland to complete the new 8.5/9 mile route.

The run is open to all and everyone will be treated to a delicious bowl of hot home made soup and a fresh bread roll upon the return of the run.

All spectators are welcome to join on the day for a bite to eat with the children welcome to enjoy the facilities and the bouncy castle.
