Very Successful Clara Mountain Run 2014

Some 52 very fit athletes  participated in this evening's annual Clara Mountain Run where running conditions were good and the weather held relatively fine.   Here we feature the first of our uploads of the important event.  We view an inspiring 11 year old and his father from Cork who took part in an inspiring manner and we meet athlete supreme, Tim O'Donoghue from East Cork who won the race in an excellent time...well under 30 minutes!

Anyone who remembers athletics in the 1990’s and 2000’s would remember Noel Berkley who ran in the 10000m at the Barcelona Olympics, and World Championships on track and cross country. He finished 5th and was impressed at the quality of the field.
