    CAMBUSLANG HARRIERS EXCEL ON TRACK, ROAD AND HILLS

    The running scene is gradually opening up again with the opportunity for athletes to compete in head to head competition with Covid safeguards in place.  For example, the number of competitors in an event may be limited or athletes start in waves according to predicted times.  Members of Cambuslang Harriers have recently participated in and performed well on the track, road and hills. Under 23 Gavin Smith, who is USA bound to take up an athletics scholarship there, smashed his 1500M personal best by 5 seconds to record the excellent time of 3.49.34 at the British Milers Event in Manchester.  […]

    SO NEAR AND YET SO FAR FOR MOIRA STEWART

    Spare a thought for Moira Stewart who clocked an Olympic Marathon qualifying time of 2.29.28 on Sunday in Prague but will miss out on a place in the Czech team as 3 other rivals have clocked faster times.  The Cambuslang qualified athlete was only 10 seconds off the final Olympic place which went to an athlete who had competed the previous week on a potentially faster course in Austria.  Having narrowly missed out on an Olympic Marathon qualifying time by 9 seconds 8 weeks previously and knowing beforehand that one Czech lady (2.28.16) had already done the qualifying time on […]

    A Virtual Event Combined with the Inter District Competition

    The first Virtual Road Event of 2021 dovetailed with the customary January Inter District Event between athletes from the East, North and West Districts. Normally selection for the Inter District Competition is based on performance in the preceding December District Races. However, due to the cancellation of live races on account of the Covid 19 lockdown, the Inter District scoring for the 6 different age groups was to be based on the top 15 eligible counters in the virtual event, male and female, from each of the 3 Scottish Districts. A healthy entry from club members across Scotland was therefore […]

    RUNNERS FACE CHALLENGING CONDITIONS IN THE VIRTUAL ROAD CHALLENGE

    The latest Lindsays Virtual Road Challenge took place between Friday 8th and Monday the 11th of January.  The new Covid 19 restrictions meant that all runs for the different age groups had to be solo efforts.  34 Cambuslang athletes had signed up for the event although in the end only 16 members participated due to the icy conditions prevailing at that time.  This drop in numbers was reflected across Scotland as many runners opted out not wishing to risk injury on slippy roads and pavements. Our 16 brave athletes deserve credit for just getting safely round their chosen routes and […]
