Local runners Chris Murphy and Mick Mullane on their way to the finish at the Grotto on the Clara road during the Clara Mountain Run last week
The Clara Mountain Run was run recently on the evening of Sunday 18th April. It was a lovely evening and for once the mountain was dry, so it was easier than other years. Over 40 brave runners started at the Presbytery on the Clara Road just after 7pm, heading back the Clara Road to the grotto and turning up Mount Leader and further onto Clara. Just over half an hour later it was won by Irish International Martin Bradshaw who emerged out of a group of three runners in the last 500m to take a comfortable victory.
There were some locals in the race field also: Michael Healy, Mick Mullane, Chris Murphy, Mary Finn and Shane Browne.
