The ninth annual Legan Nifty 50 Run is being held on May 12, starting from Mitchell's Bar, Legan, at 12.3opm.

The registration fee for any bikers wanting to take part is €20 and all of the proceeds go to the Irish Cancer Society. So far, approximately €30,000 has been raised for the charity over the course of eight years.

The organisers of the Legan Nifty 50 would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that has supported the event and greatly appreciate all the support they have received from all of the generous sponsors.

They have expressed their gratitude for all of the shops and pubs that have sponsored the event and kindly donated spot prizes and vouchers.

“We hope to get your support this year. It wouldn't have happened otherwise,” said the delighted organisers.

Special thanks has also been extended to the large number of bikers that support the event.

This year's run will start at Mitchell's Bar in Legan before heading to Carrickboy towards Longford where it will then take the bypass out to the N4 axis.

From there, the bikers will make their way through Longford town before heading to Ballymahon, through Moyvore to Ballinacarrigy and Raharney before finishing up in Legan. The run is a total of 60 miles.

This year's run promises to be as enjoyable an event as always, raising much-needed funds for a very worthy cause.
