Forfar Road Runners (FRR) held their Glen Clova Half Marathon on Saturday.

This was the first time it was held in two years because of Covid-19 and they were fortunate to have a beautiful day, with blue skies and very unseasonal warm temperatures.

There was also very little wind, making for perfect running conditions.
