Athletes gathered at the Ballannette nature reserve in Baldrine for their annual Boxing Day cross country run.


Organised by Manx Harriers, the SCS Handicap Relay was held in sunny but cold conditions.


It's a handicap event, with slower teams setting off first. First over the finish line this year was the JEMS all-female team of Judith Quane, Ellen Quane, Meghan Quane and Suzanne Wild.
Second to finish was Chafing the Dream (Stuart Jones, Ed Walter, Simon Briggs and Adam Killip), with the Greenlight TV team third (George Hurdman, Rob Hurdman, Lauren Roberts and Alexis Shea).


The fastest team was the CRAK runners, completing the course in two hours, eight minutes and 8 seconds (Kevin Loundes, Caroline Mayers, Rachael Franklin and Alan Corlett).
The fastest long leg times were recorded by Judith Quane in 50 mins 46 secs, and Alan Corlett in 39 mins 31 secs. The fastest short leg times were recorded by Rachael Franklin in 21 mims 55 secs and Ed Gumbley in 20 mins 52 secs.
