Fat Turkey Run – 10 Year Anniversary
It is with deep sadness that we must report that the lady who took ill following the Fat Turkey Run on Saturday has passed away.
The President, Executive Committee and members of Suttonians RFC wish to extend their deepest sympathy to the family of Maeve Devlin and her friends at this extremely difficult time and would ask that their wish for privacy is respected.
At the request of the family we were asked not to post a statement until now.

The Fat Turkey 10km event is to support Suttonians Rugby Football Club (established in 1924) and the IRFU Charitable Trust (Irish Rugby Football Union Charitable Trust was formed in 1978 to assist severely injured rugby players in their everyday lives, and help to restore their confidence and independence).
The scenic route is a challenging 10km course, commencing at St Fintans Church, Sutton, going all the way up Carrickbrack Road, right at the Summit Shop, right again onto Baily Green Road and up to the Summit Car Park (turnaround and aid/water station) and then back down on the same route.

Sign In will close at 10.30 followed by a 5-10 mins safety / event briefing. Participants will then take a short walk/jog to St Fintans Church car park which is the start location. The finish line will be on the grass verge opposite St Fintans Church. The race will begin at 11.00 sharp.
On completion of the race participants will jog/walk through Sutton cross to Suttonians R.F.C (approx 500 yards) where changing facilities and tea/coffee, biscuits and full bar will be available. Prize giving will take place at the club.
Cost €24 + Reg Fee. The Fat Turkey Event is a fun filled morning that has been an enormous success over the last number of years.
