Paul conquers the Marathon des Sables

Club treasurer, Paul Finnegan! Incredible!!!!

Paul came 226th out of 1,200 and 27th in his age group (out of 300), in a gruelling event which saw two runners suffer heart attacks on the first day.

In temperatures exceeding FIFTY degrees Celsius, Paul ran 156 miles across the Sahara desert, all the while carrying his rations and sleeping bag on his back!!!!! Awesome!!!!

Paul is raising money for MENCAP, click here for Paul’s Justgiving sponsor page.

The first track event of the season, the Spring OGM will be held on Saturday 25th March ! Entries must be in no later than Tuesday 21st March, so a week today. The earlier the better though. Full details on the form.

Hopefully the rather chilly weather we have currently will have gone and we’ll have the lovely Spring sunshine of the weekend back again ! 😊
Like all of our events this is open to all – both members and non members – so encourage your friends to come along and have a go at some of the many athletics events on offer. It’s always good to see new faces. 
There will also be a big contingent up from the North Uist , and the South Uist & Eriskay clubs, so it’d be great to see plenty of the SRAC red and gold on the track and field as well ! Vests will be available on the day for juniors, but please come wearing your SRAC training tops as there will unlikely be enough for all.     
There are plenty of opportunities for both juniors and seniors, with a 5000m a new event specifically for the seniors. We hope to run the 5000m as an event at the rest of the track events during the season if successful, so a great chance for seniors to take part and then target new PBs as the season progresses !
So get your entries in and let’s make this a cracker to get the track season going !
A provisional timetable will be made available here over the coming days, and there will then be a finalised one provided on the Friday evening and on the day of the event.  
As always we will be needing help from our club members and parents on the day, and a separate email will follow seeking your help with that. 
Meantime, if you have any questions, please e-mail us on,  and we’ll do our best to answer them. 
Many thanks 
The SRAC Track & Field team
