Alan Lumley

We are deeply saddened to announce the loss of Alan Lumley following this year’s Waters Wilmslow Half Marathon. The family has asked for the tribute below to be made public. Our thoughts are with them at this very sad time.
Alan was born in Warrington, grew up in Darlington and thereafter moved to Manchester. He went to Barnard Castle School and later studied Law at the University of Manchester and BPP Law School.
Alan was a talented solicitor working for DLA Piper and was recently shortlisted for two Young Lawyer of the Year awards.
Alan was an excellent sportsman; playing rugby league and union throughout school, both at county school-boy level. In recent years, Alan was a keen runner and had previously completed ten half marathon and 10K races. Running was a passion that he shared with his girlfriend of eight years Nicky Harris. Alan enjoyed playing golf was also an avid Liverpool FC and Warrington Wolves supporter.

Alan’s Mum, Dad, Sister and Girlfriend commented: “Alan was the kindest and most loving son, brother and boyfriend that anyone could ever wish for. He was loyal, thoughtful and was liked and admired by everyone he met. Due to his sharp intellect and captivating personality he had established a successful career which showed great promise. He had been renovating his first home in Cheadle Hulme with Nicky and was looking forward to being an usher at sister Julia’s wedding in eight weeks time.

“Our lives have been shattered by the tragic loss of Alan on his 31st birthday during the Wilmslow Half Marathon on 3 April 2016. His memory will live on through us as we will celebrate his life the way he lived his – doing the things he loved with the people he loved.”


All money raised via Alan’s JustGiving Page will be donated to a charity that Alan’s family will choose once the cause of his tragic death is discovered. Click on the picture to visit the page.
