LKR Events formed in 2006 under the name LucasKeepsRunning as a charity fundraising site supporting Lucas Meagor’s various sport based fundraising activities. Initially running, this expanded to include cycling, kayaking, swimming, Triathlon along with other challenges.
In 2012, Lucas was a Games Maker at the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games and was inspired to go into the Sport Events field. In 2013, at 37, Lucas attended Leeds Metropolitan University and completed an BA Hons degree in Events Management.
