TWO young runners from Langholm represented their club at a national cross country relay last weekend.
Conan Harper and Iona Jamieson were competing for the Teviotdale Harriers at the Lindsays National Cross Country Relays at Cumbernauld.
The event proved to be a superb advert for cross country running in Scotland.
Clubs competed in big numbers and four races delivered an exciting spectacle across the hills and mud of the park around Cumbernauld House.
It is among the most popular in the whole calendar of athletics in Scotland, with national titles up for grabs for the teams.

Their team Teviotdale Harriers A was 16th out of 25 teams with a time of 28.42.
Iona’s team came 53rd out of 76 teams in a time of 35.28.
Iona ran a time of 11.21 and came 73rd, while Maisie Ballantyne was 53rd with a time of 10.48 and L Brown was 89th in a time of 13.19.
