SLRC - Skye and Lochalsh Running Club
SLRC - Skye and Lochalsh Running and Athletics Club to give it its full title - was formed in September 2002 with the express purpose of promoting running for enjoyment in our local area.
Club nights are held most Wednesdays, with runs being organised at various venues throughout the summer - check our Message Board page for details. During the winter months members usually meet at 6pm at the Fingal Centre, in the Portree Community High school complex. In addition members regularly travel to races elsewhere in the country, teaming up for shared lifts and mutual support.
Also the club has actively been involving in charity fund-raising with a sponsored round Skye relay run in 2005 which brought in £2440 for Macmillan Cancer Care. More recently, again for the same cause, a group of hardy club runners completed a 235 mile relay which took them out to the Western Isles and back again , with a little help from the ferry of course!! Altogether a grand total of £2,186 was collected.
SLRC runs a popular winter series of races, open to all whether club members or not, which take place at a variety of venues around Skye and Lochalsh. In addition a series of week-end runs, often off-road, are also organised on an ad-hoc basis. Race details can be found on the Calendar page, informal runs on the Message Board.
If you want to get involved with the club, have any queries or want more information, then why not contact us via the Message Board or Feedback pages?
