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.
Cambuslang Harriers masters athletes were out in force this weekend as they attempted to defend 3 Scottish and British XC team relay titles, whilst also fielding an M65 team for the first time at the British Masters XC relays at Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire. This was the first time that the club has managed to field an M65 team in any event, with the outcome hard to predict, but the team of Peter Ogden, Barnie Gough and Frank Hurley were keen to lay down a marker for future participation in other events. The lads travelled down on Friday as their race, […]
It was a busy and again successful weekend for club athletes competing in Scotland, England and the Czech Republic. Down south the Cambuslang M55 team of Frank Hurley, Paul Thomson, Dave Thom and Colin Donnelly were emphatic winners of the UK 055 Male Cross Country Relay Championships. Colin recorded the fastest time in his age group and Dave was 3rd fastest. Colin Feechan deserves thanks for being team manager, reserve and driver. Elsewhere Kenny MacPherson finished 3rd M45 in the Brampton to Carlisle 10 mile road race and Alasdair Campbell was the first athlete home in the Glossop Parkrun. […]
Being Scotland's only entrants at the British Masters XC Relays champs, held in Long Eaton, England, and with healthy competition to make the 4-man M55 team, the team left East Kilbride a little before 7am with high hopes of bettering the 4th place showing in the BMAF Masters road relays in May, when they narrowly missed out on a podium position. With some wintry conditions forecast en route, leeway for planned for any hold ups (thankfully only one 10-minute delay), and a nice breakfast stop, and we arrived in plenty time at Long Eaton […]
Wednesday night’s race was a tremendous success for the club. We convincingly won the team title for the first time (15 points) ahead of Central (26) and Shettleston (28) who fielded the same team which pipped us for the Scottish 10 mile team championship.Grant took an excellent 2nd place and first U20 in a very strong field while taking 27 seconds off his pb. Hopefully Grant will shortly be selected to represent Scotland in the Triathlon for the Commonwealth Games. Good back up came from Ben and Stuart who in 6th and 7th were just outside the 15 minute mark taking […]

Thanks to all all runners who took part in the 4K last night and to those who helped with the stewarding and timing. There was a good turn out both for the 4K and the 2 shorter races. We were pleased to see Owen Walpole make his debut for the club. Owen only moved up from Durham to start work in Scotland yesterday. Once he settles in he will be an asset to our club. The 4k runners all started together apart from Katie who is on her active break at the moment. She ran a tempo solo run. Alistair […]
The final event of the cross country season took place at Livingston on Saturday in the form of the Scottish Road Relay Championships and Ronhill Cambuslang continued their success with two team gold medals and one bronze award. The club had a number of athletes missing due to injuries and to the event taking place over a holiday weekend. Our resources were further stretched due to the inclusion of an inaugural 4 man over 50 championship. Nevertheless, the vet over 35 and over 50 teams secured decisive victories with the junior/senior men gaining the bronze medals for the 3 rd consecutive year.
Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers held their annual open 10K and 3K races on Sunday. Conditions for running were good with no real wind for the record field of 118 participants in the 10K to contend with. Straight from the gun the race developed into a battle between the Cambuslang duo of Davy Munro and Robert Gilroy and remained so throughout the race. (photos Kenny Phillips)
Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers exceeded their medal expectations at Saturday’s national cross country championships when they came away with 4 male team medals plus the AT Mays Trophy for the best male cross country club in Scotland, 2 female team medals and 4 individual medals.
