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.
Club President, Cambuslang Harriers

Cambuslang Harriers defied the odds to put on their annual Down by the River 10K and 3K road races on Sunday 1st March. Course director Owen Reid had been regularly monitoring the route which is run mainly on the Clyde Walkway in the weeks leading up to the event. Although Scotland had experienced its highest February rainfall in 30 years the course was water free on the Saturday. However, persistent heavy rain during the night had led to flooding on the furthest out section of the course. While the flooding did not affect the 3K course the 10k route was […]
Many Thanks to all who took part in today’s revised 10k As you know a course inspection at 9am confirmed the River was up over the path, at that time the large “puddle” you ran through wasn’t there, so the River was still rising, and further along the course you would have had to swim. So, thank you for putting up with the revised course, and the wet and windy weather. Full results (they will need a little tidying, a few back markers set the mats off on their way past) can be found online here. Prize winners Female […]
