The Roundwood Fun Duathlon will take place on Thursday 27th of December generously sponsored by Kavanagh’s Vartry House. This community event will provide a great opportunity for folk to shake off the Christmas cobwebs and test the new bikes that Santa brought while raising much needed funds for Roundwood Cancer Support Group.  The route will consist of a 5 mile cycle and a 1 mile run taking in some of the Vartry Reservoirs trails. For families and those of a less competitive nature, there is a shorter walk which will be entirely on footpaths or on the Vartry trails. An evening of great entertainment is planned afterwards in Kavanagh’s Vartry House.  A fun afternoon for all the family is guaranteed. Registration from 1.30pm at Kavanagh’s with a race start time of 2pm.


There will be a five day trip to Slovenia on the 4th April to the 9th April at a cost of €699 per person sharing. As there are limited places a deposit of €200 is required asap.
