As unofficial keeper of the Hartley Archives let me give you a bit of background….
The relays were started way back in 1985 by a Kinross Runner named Eddie Hartley, who was trying to promote a fun short distance event for long distance runners. The event has grown more popular over the years and now attracts 150 -> 200 runners each year. There are now prizes for the fastest male team, fastest female team, fastest mixed team, fastest male, fastest female and fastest junior team. PRR have a brilliant history at this event and our names are plastered all over the trophies , except one.
More details once I have an idea of numbers. Last year we had 5 teams entered.
