Pedal the Periphery

Could you cycle 480 miles around NI in 48 hours? In 2023, that’s exactly what sisters Cathy Booth and Andrea Harrower did in memory of Cathy’s school friend, Natalie Wilson and Andrea’s husband Paddy who both died of pancreatic cancer. It was Paddy’s wish that ‘something good’ would come out of his terminal cancer diagnosis and it did. The sisters smashed the epic endurance event, crossing the finish line in less than the time allocated raising over £100k for pancreatic cancer and awareness in 80 countries.

This year it is a legacy event open to teams of two, four, six, eight and ten people with a cap at 30 teams. The challenge takes place on the weekend of June 7th to 9th, starting at the Titanic Slipways finishing at Wallace High School in Lisburn, where Paddy was a PE teacher. He was a sports fanatic, keen cyclist, and endurance enthusiast.

Will you join us, help keep his memory alive and continue the sisters’ determination to take a stand against this devastating illness which 280 people will be diagnosed with in NI each year.
