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.

Members of Cambuslang Harriers have been very active in recent weeks competing on road, track and hills in Scotland, England, Wales, the Czech Republic and the USA. The main road focus in Scotland was the Scottish SRI Chinmoy 5K Road Championship held on a flat but blustery course at Silverknowes in Edinburgh. The general consensus was that the strong winds slowed the athletes’ times. Previously both men and women have run together but this year for health and safety reasons the men set off 5 minutes before the women. The harriers fielded 21 male and 5 female athletes plus Andrew […]
The car was full, stories were being regaled, the banter was flowing, no one (present or absent) was spared. It could only mean one thing – Cambuslang Harriers are on their travels again. The venue was once again Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham for the British Masters Road Relay championships. Ever since the club picked up its first medals at this event (Gold in 1999 with an 8-man M40 team), we have regularly travelled to this blue ribbon masters race and had picked up 18 medals (8 golds, 6 silver and 4 bronze) over various age groups until this […]
15 of our masters athletes donned the red and white vest on Sunday at the Grangemouth Round The Houses 10k, which incorporated the British Masters 10k championships. It is not too often that British Masters events are held in Scotland and we were determined to make our mark individually and in team performances. Our athletes didn’t disappoint and 13 of them came away with one or more medals after some outstanding runs. Our only female athlete Erica Christie won the W65 gold medal in 47:12 with the first 3 W65’s all under 48 minutes. Our first finisher was Stevie Wylie […]
Members of Cambuslang Harriers have been busy over the last week competing at various venues such as Manchester, Istanbul, Reading, Motherwell, Dunkeld and Grangemouth on road, hill and track. There were many notable performances. Fraser Stewart made a spectacular marathon debut at Manchester when winning the open race held in conjunction with the elite event. In spite of tiring over the last 2 miles he recorded 2.18.40 which is the 2nd fastest time by a Scottish athlete this year. He was unfortunate to catch Covid just prior to the Scottish Cross Country Championships but his marathon time reveals he has […]
