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.
Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers featured prominently in the medals at the Lanarkshire Cross Country Championships at Coatbridge on Saturday 30 November 2013.
The senior/veteran men filled the first 4 places and not surprisingly were clear winners of the team race. Robert Gilroy just edged out Stuart Gibson by 3 seconds after having being locked together throughout the 6 mile race. Jamie Reid after a steady start worked his way through to 3rd and first veteran with Gordon Robertson 4th. Ross Stephen in 7th place was the first under 20 athlete and Colin Feechan in 15th spot was the first veteran over 50. In the ladies race Caitie Gorton Phillips in only her second race for the club secured a worthy bronze medal.
The under 13, 15 and 17 boys teams also won gold. David Robertson in 3rd place led Jack McGregor and Sean Reilly to victory. There was similar team success for the under 15 squad with Keir Morton also in bronze position being supported by Gavin Smith and Euan Miller. Drew Pollock went one better in the under 13 event to take individual silver and was ably assisted by Christopher McLew and Ruairidh McGregor. It was good to see Ryan Stephen competing again after a lengthy injury. The under 11 boys also did well to finish second team with Euan McLew 5th, Jordan Davies 6th and Cole McKinnon 13th.
Niamh Brown ran strongly to claim victory in the under 15 girls event with Olivia Mullholland in 6th place. In the under 13 and under 11 girl races Keira Watson and Chloe Burton finished in 6th position.
Congratulations to all our members who took part and many thanks to our coaches, parents and supporters who gave encouragement on the day.
The club’s focus now turns to Saturday’s West District Cross Country Championships at Kilmarnock and best wishes to all our competing athletes.
