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 were well represented at the Inter District XC Event held in the shadow of historic Stirling Castle between the North, East and West of Scotland and the Scottish Universities. Selection to this event is based on performance in the district championships and Cambuslang had 12 athletes across the age groups representing the West and one athlete running for the Universities. Unfortunately with the incessant and heavy rain the ground became more churned up with each successive race and by the later stages it was very much all about survival of the fittest. Just to finish showed […]

This year’s West District Cross Country Championships were held on a hilly Balloch course made even more challenging by the persistent rain which poured down on the runners thus making the course slippery in places. All who ran and all coaches and supporters in attendance deserve a medal for braving the monsoon elements. The Cambuslang senior and masters men along with the under 17 men were certainly in the medals. The senior men lifted their 3rd successive team title, the masters men their 5th successive team gold and the U17 men gained their 4th team silver in a row. The […]

The under 11 girls and then the under 11 boys kicked off the racing programme. These championships offer one of the few opportunities during the winter season for […]

There was a double bonus for the M35 team when Stuart Gibson finished 2nd in […]
Members of Cambuslang Harriers travelled to Kirkcaldy to participate in the Scottish Short Course Cross Country Championships. The up and down muddy course was to be a test of stamina. There were races for the under 15 boys and girls, under 17 men and women, the under 20, senior and masters women and the same age groups for the men. Competition in all age groups was fierce and medals were hard to come by. However, M40 Ben Hukins managed to pick up the bronze medal in his age group in a gutsy late sprint to the line. In the under […]
