you might have two different species on the runners but closer pictures would be better to see. the one in the middle of the runners is almost unquestionably oak the two on the outside i would agree with mike they do look like ash. similar in how they look but ash tends to be lighter and doesn’t have the short ray flecks through the side grain. the one runner on the right has a very ash like look to it. oak on the ends will have straw like holes along the grain. the decking parts i cant honesly tell what they are from the pictures without seeing more close up pictures.

edit: just read the line that you already knew what the middle runner was.

mckinney mike I may be posting some pictures soon of some wood I cant identify.
