'I hate hills' - Jamie Wall takes on Run In the Dark with encouragement from cousin Podge Collins

The Cork native had ‘Team Jamie’ on the streets for the annual run. .

THOUSANDS OF YOU took to the streets of Dublin, Cork, Limerick and beyond this week for the annual Run In the Dark event.

So too did former Cork U21 football star Jamie Wall, who had hundreds of wellwishers running for him as ‘Team Jamie’ on Leeside.

Last June, a spin infection led the Kilbrittain man to lose the use of his legs but his positive, battling attitude since has been inspirational.

Wall lined out for the Mark Pollock Trust race in midweek along with his cousin Podge Collins of Clare GAA fame.
