TWO ARBROATH runners completed their first Edinburgh Marathon last Sunday to raise money for their respective charities.

Andrew Hartley and Stuart Gray both completed the 26.2 mile course raising over £2,000 between them.

Andrew, who started running just under a year ago clocked a time of three hours and 46 minutes, raising £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Stuart realised £1,800 the Yorkhill Children’s Foundation after the help and support his family received from the organisation.

He only started training for the Marathon four months ago but still managed to finish it in four hours and nine minutes.
