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.
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.
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 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.

After a 2 years absence the Scottish Short Course Championships made a welcome return to Lanark Race Course. The dry weather conditions were in sharp contrast to the very heavy rain there in 2021. Nearby Tinto Hill was clearly visible in the distance whereas previously it was hidden from sight by the very low clouds. Cambuslang Harriers fielded teams in the U15 boys and U17 men’s 2K and 3K events and in the separate 4K races for the senior/master women and men. Teamwise the highlight was a silver medal for the senior men while the U15 boys in 4th place […]
The West District Relay Championships at Alexandra Park ushered in the autumn cross country season. Unfortunately the weather the day before and on the morning of the event resulted in numerous road closures due to flooding. Some clubs such as Inverclyde AC could not travel and Cambuslang Harriers lost the services of Kenny Campbell who was due to run the first leg for the M40 team. Kenny and his wife Jennifer had set out early from their home in Campbeltown but had to abandon their journey on account of road flooding and an avalanche. M50 Mark King and senior lady […]
4 Cambuslang athletes, Colin Feechan, Dave Thom, Chris Upson and Jacqueline Etherington flew the flag for the club in the European Track and Non Stada Championships in Italy.

Colin who had only turned 65 on the eve of the Championships put on an impressive display of strong running to lift […]
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 […]
