Sky’s the limit as 10K lifeboat fundraiser returns

in Clifden/Top Stories


The Clifden Lifeboat 10K Run returns this year on Sunday September 11, promising to be bigger and better than ever – and to raise money for a vital local service.

The area’s only small local race, it is organised in memory of local man Mikey Mullen who died in September 2004 when the MVF St Oliver sank off the Carna coast.

Offering something for all levels of fitness, the race is suitable for athletes, leisure runners and walkers alike. And, just like the services provided by the local RNLI, it takes place come rain or shine!

Organiser Laurence Ingelbach says: ‘Now is the time to run with and against friends and family, work mates, school mates and club mates.

‘The route, which brings you up the Sky Road, takes in some of the most spectacular scenery you will find and past participants have said the sense of achievement is ‘second to none’.

Online entries are now opened on or checkout the race’s Facebook page
