Cambuslang Harriers, since its formation in 1948, has become one of the premier cross country and road running clubs across all age groups in Scotland. We also have a very talented girls and ladies group who now regularly win major team honours.

Who do you cater for?

Although we are a very successful club most of our members are in the club to run and train with like-minded individuals. They enjoy the company on training nights as they endeavour to improve their fitness and performance. We cater for anyone from the young athlete taking part in athletics for the first time to the older runner who just wishes to keep fit, and who may never wish to race competitively. Cambuslang Harriers also welcomes athletes with a disability, learning difficulties and those from ethnic minorities wishing to participate in athletics.

Join Us


We are as a club affiliated to Scottish Athletics and adhere to their standards in terms of athlete development and with their code of conduct for all club members and volunteers.

We want you to share in the feel good factor that we as a club strive to create and to be aware of the benefits that running can bring to the health and wellbeing of all of our members.

Here is how we plan to do this for all of our junior and senior athletes:

• We want all of our members to enjoy the fun of running, be it on the road, the muck and mud of cross country, or on the track, we do it all.
• We aim to build on their athletic capability and nurture them to become the very best athlete they can be.
• Empower them to achieve their goals in a competitive environment.
• In line with Scottish Athletics and UK Athletics best practice, we take a long term view of our athletes and our coaching structure is designed to support this.
• Our volunteer team of coaches are all professionally trained and vetted.

Persevere is the club’s motto and to be inspired is the name of the game.

Competition is what we train for; building resilience and a real sense of achievement.

Cambuslang Harriers has a proud reputation of being a community-based club and also a high performing club where as Usain Bolt says, ‘running and training bring pain’. But this is balanced with the feel good factor and the sense of achievement you get when you take part and give of your best.

August and early September was a busy time for Cambuslang’s road, track and hill runners as well as triathletes.  There was a number of local road races along with the Ladies World Marathon Championships in Budapest where Moira Stewart represented the Czech Republic.  In very warm and humid conditions she performed very well to record the time of 2.34.02 for 26th place.  The temperature was already 24 degrees at the 7.00am starting time and reached 28 degrees by the finish.  At the Bute 10K Chris Upson lifted the M60 award while senior ladies Catriona Bain and new member Natalie McWilliams […]



Members of Cambuslang Harriers have again been active in late July and early August both in triathlon, track, road and hill running events. Congratulations go to Zach Seenan who gained a silver medal in the U20 British Standard Distance Triathlon Championships at Sunderland.

First Cambuslang runner home was M35 Steven Fitzpatrick in a time of 16.05 which was only 10 seconds outside his pb. He was followed in by M50 Mark King whose time of 16.59 was his first sub 17 minutes clocking. The leading M60 Dave Thom crossed the line only 7 seconds behind Mark. The last time David had run […]



Unfortunately Cambuslang Harriers do not have a track in Cambuslang or Rutherglen and have to travel to either Crownpoint in Glasgow or to East Kilbride to fit in track sessions. However, this did not deter Chris McLew, Gavin Smith and Jamie MacKinnon from breaking the 11 years old Scottish Senior 3 x 800M Relay Record held by a Giffnock North team which included the current European silver medallist Neil Gourley. The Cambuslang trio knocked over 2 seconds from the previous national record and over 13 seconds from the existing club record set in 1997 by Graeme Ferguson, David MacRae and […]
