Kerry - John Lenihan - Mountain Running Legend Pt.1 of 3
He has won the Carrauntoohil race in Kerry on 19 occasions and holds the current record of 71 minutes 43 seconds.
That time of just over 71 minutes is not the time for just getting to the summit. It's the time taken to run from the base of the mountain, up to the top of Caher, Irelands 3rd highest mountain (1001 metres asl)........accross the ridge to Carrauntoohil, the highest mountain in the country (1039 metres asl) ......and then return by the same route! An incredible time.
A 2 hour video has now been compiled and is available in 3 parts of roughly 40 minutes each.
Part 1 of 3 is shown below...
