Stornoway Running Club take to the road to promote the Mod in Lewis and raise cash for two very worthy causes

<a data-saferedirecturl="" href="" style="color: rgb(17, 85, 204);" target="_blank">



Stornoway Running Club is ‘up and running’ again as part of Mod nan Eilean’s Royal National Mod week! For over a hundred years An Comunn Gàidhealach has followed its motto of; Ar Canain ‘s ar Ceol – our language and our music. In advance of an Comunn’s weeklong celebration of the Gaeltacht’s rich heritage SRAC will be run from Oban To Stornoway. Ten SRAC runners lead by stalwarts, Tony Robson and Jim Bruce and Calbost Harrier Norrie MacKay will run the One Hundred and Sixty Two miles carrying a message from last year’s hosts Oban to be read at the opening ceremony in an Lantair Stornoway.

Tony, Jim and Norrie will be taking part in their third Mod Relay, the only runners that have taken part in all three relays.  As their limbs slow with age they will be delighted to have club speedster Norman Ferguson running and our international member Gerald Kalchauer who travelled from Linz, Austria to run with the team!

The previous  relay’s have been the 153 miles between Thurso and Sy (the long way) in 2011 and the road between Perth and Sy, all 190miles of it in 2005. The team has collected donations en route and when passing Dalwhinnie Distillery during the 2005 run the team was gifted a bottle of malt from the distillery. The following Relay of 2011 had pre-arranged stops at Old Pultney, Clynlish and Balblair Distilleries and the bottles were auctioned for the cause! Keeping with tradition the team will pop into Oban Distillery at the events start. Then en route the team will visit Ben Nevis and Glen Ord Distilleries, their contributions are appreciated and will add to monies collected by the event.

The team running to promote the 125th Royal National Mod in Lewis will be raising funds for the R.N.L.I. and MacMillan Cancer Support. Donations can be made through SRAC members or by donating on our Just Giving page; have a look thanks!

Suas Leis aGhaidhlig – Buidhean Ruith Steornabhagh!

Saturday 17th September.

Entries accepted on the day.

A dozen SRAC leisure runners went round the 10k course last month in preparation for this year's race so a good turnout from SRAC's mainstream and leisure runners is anticipated.

The races are suitable for all abilities with the 5k well attended particularly by younger runners.

Entry Form Doc

Details for the event were sent out in a recent email, copied below for information:

Hi all 
Just a quick e-mail with the entry form for SRAC's last track and field event of the season here in Stornoway on Saturday 10 September. A last chance to get a new PB, and maybe to try some new events.
Completed entry forms shouldn't be handed to coaches please. 

There is a box at the reception in the Sports centre where they can be left, or please post or e-mail them to Stuart.


We will also be looking for volunteers as well and an e-mail will be sent out over the weekend.

So if you helped out before raking, measuring, carrying etc and can do the same thing again that'd be great. Also if it's new to you don't worry, it's all quite straight forward and you'll be working with someone who has done it before. The more who help the easier it is for us all, and trust us we really could do with the help. ;-)    

Any questions, please reply here.

Remember entries need to be in by Tuesday 6th September by midnight !

A provisional timetable will be distributed over the next couple of days. 
The SRAC Track & Field team
