Plans for 2017 are in hand, with LAM Action, who Lucas supported in 2013, once again being nominated. The year will include Lucas's 12th London Marathon, a trip to the 2013 UK City of Culture, Derry/Londonderry for the Walled City Marathon and a further date to be confirmed before the 50th Marathon on 1st October 2017.
It also sees Lucas oversee the RB Hull Marathon in September as Race Director for the first time in the city's prestigious year as UK City of Culture.
Lucas has also entered his first obstacle challenge, the Rat Race Dirty Weekend in early May.
Other races Lucas is considering for the future include: Marathons: the midnight Sun in TROMSØ, Norway , Tórshavn Marathon(Faroe Islands) along with the Medoc marathon in France. And still plans to run the Seoul Marathon one March as well as marathons in Africa, South American and Oceania.
The other crazy idea in the thinking is an Ironman (2.5 mile swim, 112 mile cycle and a marathon in one go!) Another challenge being considered is running either (or both) the length of Ireland and the UK!
