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.
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 […]
The winter season for runners, which had begun with the West District Cross Country Relays at the beginning of October, ended in late March with the Scottish Young Athletes Road Championships and the Seniors and Masters Road Relay Championships. Cambuslang Harriers concluded the season with an individual U17 ladies bronze medal for Millie Nicholl and team gold for the M50 team of Mark Gallacher, Chris Upson, Richard Cooper and Kerry- Liam Wilson while Andre Carey picked up a bronze senior team medal in the colours of Glasgow University. Cameron Smith too rounded off his season on a high when helping […]
Cambuslang Harriers were delighted to stage once again the Achilles Heel sponsored Down by the River 10K and 3K races held on the traffic free Clyde Walkway. The very calm conditions on the day were conducive to producing fast times and so it proved to be with a number of course records being set. Race winners Fraser Stewart of the home club (31.05) and Catherine Stewart (38.10), an unattached runner, reduced the existing course records by 44 and 29 seconds respectively with runner up Lesley Blackwood (38.25) of Cambuslang also comfortably inside the previous record. Congratulations are due to Fraser […]
The Scottish Cross Country Championships made a welcome return to Callendar Park Falkirk after a 2 year absence. Fortunately weather and ground conditions were more kind than in 2020. However, athletes still needed to be careful in certain areas such as when negotiating the water filled ditch after a rapid descent. In a closely fought team battle for the senior title over 10 K Central AC prevailed once again to relegate Shettleston and Cambuslang to the silver and bronze medal positions. Ryan Thomson in his first cross country race for 2 years led the home club counters home. Out of […]
Cross Country Competitions in the North of Scotland and in London for Cambuslang’s Older and Younger Members.
delayed report from weekend of the 5th and 6th Feb. The Scottish Masters Cross Country Championships which were postponed in 2021 due to Covid were staged this year in Aberdeen. The event had previously been held there in 2001 when Cambuslang’s Colin Donnelly won the individual masters men’s race and led bronze medalist Frankie Barton, Gerry Reid and Freddy Connor to team gold. Frank Hurley narrowly missed out on a medal that day finishing just behind Freddy. There was no M50 team championship until 2011. The club made history last Saturday in the opening race when fielding its first ever […]
Cambuslang Harriers wish to announce the sad passing of former club president and secretary Des Yuill who has died at the age of 83. The club would like to offer its condolences to his wife Christine and family. The funeral service will take place at Daldowie Crematorium on Thursday 17th February at 2.00pm. Des was originally a member of Maryhill Harriers but joined Cambuslang Harriers in 1972 when he moved to Burnside. While continuing to run for enjoyment and doing the occasional race, he became heavily involved in the administration of the club and served as secretary from 1973 to […]
A number of Cambuslang Harriers have recently been involved in races on the road, track and country. 5 members saw out 2021 by participating in the Tilli 10K on the 27th December. Ryan Thomson ended his year on a high when he pulled away in the closing stages from Scotland’s Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Robbie Simpson to breast the tape in a personal best time of 29.45. Only 3 other athletes including club mate Grant Sheldon have run faster on this course. Stevie Wylie enjoying his move into the M50 category underlined his dominance when lifting his age category prize […]
