I tried plastic runners in a similar application (not a sled), and found that the plastic wanted to swell when a flat headed screw was tightened down, making it jam in the slot. You might avoid this by counterboring and using pan head screws to attach the runner. But 3/8” thick runners don t give you a lot of material to work with.

I had the same problem with UHMW. Kept bulging the outer walls near the screws. Ended up just using wood.
