This weekend saw 11 new Western Isles athletics coaches start their level 2 qualification through the ‘Scottish Athletics’ run course.

The coaches from Stornoway Running and Athletics Club (SRAC), North Uist Amateur Athletics Club (NUAAC), the South Uist & Eriskay Amateur Athletics Club (SUEAAC), and the West Side Runners, had a busy Friday and Saturday with the 2 day course held in Stornoway. The new coaches will add to the network of athletics volunteers working in the communities with their local clubs from the Butt to Barra!
