Fathers' Day race dedicated to dad
by Stephanie O'Connor

A KEEN cyclist from Formby is taking part in a gruelling 24-hour endurance race in memory of her late father.

Kathryn Banks is taking part as a solo competitor in Mountain Mayhem, a day long bike race, one of the biggest of its kind with over 2,500 competitors covering a total of 200 miles on off road terrain.

She decided to take part in the race, which is being held over June 18 and 19 to raise money for cancer research in memory of her father Barrie Banks, who lost his fight with the disease in 2009.

She said: “Its really poignant as the race is being held on Fathers Day and I am doing this in memory of Dad.

”I am hoping to raise as much as possible, and would like to thank my employers, staff and parents at Premier Nursery Education Centre in Ainsdale for their support.

“Also the Cross House Inn in Formby, Phil and staff from Formby cycles, Minards Pavlou Solicitors and my partner Mike for their support.”
