RUNNING clubs from across the county took part in the 15-hour virtual relay against teams from across Wales and further afield recently.

Some 58 teams took part in the Cardiff Gait 15-Hour Challenge with just one runner from each club allowed to be active at each time before passing on the virtual baton.

It was down to each team how long runners took part in their leg in the challenge which took place between 5am and 8pm.
