There was a record turnout of 50 teams at the Hartley Inter-club Relay on Sunday.

Arbroath Footers had two teams competing in the event, Born to Run and Kelly’s Heroes. Hosted by Forfar Road Runners, each runner had to run a 1.34 mile loop by Forfar Loch twice.

Margaret Gregory, Emma Gauld, Natalie Burgess, Kelly Bennett, Fiona Robb, Jacqui Treays, Alec Campbell, Jagoda Penkala, Chris Elliott, Pamela Brandie, Tina Fowler, Lynn Hastie and Jayne McKay all ran and thoroughly enjoyed the event.
