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.

Club update 4th Jan 2021

Dear members and friends, with the announcement by the FM today it is clear we are in lockdown for the foreseeable future, although we await on an update from SAL as to what this means for sport. For now, this means that club activities are suspended and that meeting up for group sessions at the Rugby Club or elsewhere must stop until further notice. This is obviously very disappointing for us all. However, all is not doom and gloom. Here is what you can do:  You can still exercise in a group of 2 only. We will publish on the […]

Members of Cambuslang Harriers were keen to participate in the West District Cross Country Championships which was cancelled last year due to the Covid lockdown.  The competition for all age groups from under 13 to masters was being held at the scenic but testing Balloch Country Park course.   Conditions were wet just as in 2019 which meant that cornering at speed was challenging.  However, that’s part and parcel of cross country running.  Cambuslang Harriers came away with 2 gold, one silver and 2 bronze individual medals along with 2 team gold and one bronze team medal.  There was an added […]



The Scottish Short Course Championships returned to the now disused Lanark Race Course which staged the first Scottish Cross Country Championships as far back as 1886.  The race distance for the under 15 runners was 2K, 3K for the under 17 athletes and 4K for the women and men.  Unfortunately the competitors had to contend with heavy rain and near gale conditions.  Nevertheless, there was a good turnout of talented athletes from all over Scotland and also of spectators for whom there was the added attraction of seeing 3 Olympians in action namely Laura Muir, Andrew Butchart and Jake Wightman. […]



The grounds of the historic Scone Palace, where the Scottish Kings including Robert the Bruce were crowned, was the new venue for the Scottish Cross Country Relays.  With the event having been cancelled last year due to Covid restrictions there was, not surprisingly, a large gathering of contestants across the age groups.  Cambuslang Harriers were well represented and came away with silver and bronze medals in the M40 and M50 categories as well as finishing 2 senior men’s teams in the top 8 positions.  The format and order of events was the same as in the previous West Relays and […]



Members of Cambuslang Harriers returned to full scale competition at the West District Cross Country Championships which was held on the undulating golf course within Glasgow’s Alexandra Park.  The event was not held in 2020 due to Covid Restrictions.  Several athletes across the age groups were participating in cross country running for the first time having taken up running during lockdown.  The wet conditions did not deter the harriers from putting in some very good performances. The programme kicked off with the young female relay event in which an under 13, under 15 and under 17 athlete all ran a […]
