SRAC stars Abbie Mackay and Jenny McTaggart (pictured) raced into national finals at the National Indoor Age Group Championships at the fantastic Emirates Arena in Glasgow this week.

The duo produced immense 60m heats which included two strong PB runs.

Abbie came fourth in her race in 8.35, straight off the long jump, and Jenny ran 8.26 to finish fourth in the second heat, with both girls making the final.

Their new PBs also see them break into the Scottish rankings for U20 girls, with Jenny ranked 10 and Abbie ranked 15.

The final later in the morning saw the SRAC girls run really well again in a quality race which was won in a very fast 7.7. Jenny came home seventh with Abbie eighth, and while there were no further PBs, there aren’t many clubs who can say they had 2 athletes in a National final.
