Conor Fleming was first in the over 50 category in the Clonakilty Half Marathon last Saturday in a time of 85 mins 15 secs when finishing 18th overall.
Clonakilty was the venue last weekend for their annual festival promotion of races that included the marathon, half marathon and 10k.
Conditions, to say the least, were challenging on Saturday, with cold wind and rain the order of the day as well as the scenic hilly roads around west Cork. Such conditions, however, didn’t deter Clonmel AC members and we saw some great performances.
