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.

Cambuslang Harriers senior women and men were invited once again to compete in the Armagh International Road Races. The Armagh event is renowned for the warm reception given to competitors by the host club Armagh AC, for attracting a top international and domestic field and for generating fast times in the women and men’s 3K and 5K races. The preceding local schools’ races took place in very wet and windy conditions. However, fortunately the rain went off shortly before the senior women toed the line. The club was represented by Stafanie Tucker who was also counting for the Scottish team, […]
Apart from the Inter District Cross Country Championships January tends to be a quiet month in the athletics’ calendar. Nine Cambuslang athletes had earlier qualified at the West District Championships in December to represent the West in the Inter District Match at Renfrew. Unfortunately senior athletes Katie Clubb and Gavin Smith and U17 Zach Seenan were unable to take their places due to injury and illness. U13 Brooke Walker kicked off the proceeding followed by Ewan Kennedy who was a counting member for the victorious U13 boys West team. In the U15 boys event Daibhidh Kinnaird and Euan Reid helped […]
MARATHON OLYMPIC QUALIFIER MOIRA STEWART AND COACH MIKE JOHNSTON CATCH THE EYE IN THE CLOSING WEEKS OF DECEMBER 2023
The first West Cross Country League Match of season 2023-24 was staged at Kilmarnock in mid November. The value of this competition is that it gives athletes resident in the West of Scotland further opportunities to gain race experience on the country and it is also one of the few events in which athletes under 11 can participate. U11 runners Monica Smith, Amelia Otakoya, Niall Smith and Douglas Gallie duly took part as did the trio of U13 girls Brooke Walker, Eve Campbell and Iona Campbell along with U17 Gabriel Murphy. Both women and men ran together in the U20/senior/masters […]
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 […]
