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.
The Scottish Veteran Harriers held a trial at Tollcross Park for the upcoming Masters XC International Event to be staged in Dublin in November. In the 4 different male age groups between the ages of 35 and 54 the first 3 finishers would gain automatic selection with an additional 3 athletes being selected on known form. Similarly in the older men’s age groups the first 2 finishers would be selected along with a further 2 on current form. Cambuslang’s Paul Thompson in finishing the first M65 in the 6K event gained automatic selection. It’s remarkable how Paul manages to keep […]

Members of Cambuslang Harriers have been very active in recent weeks off road, on road and track as well as well as participating in triathlon events. The club picked up an individual gold, 3 individual bronze medals and 2 team gold medals at the Scottish National Trail Race at Falkland Estate in Fife. Sam McCarthy ran superbly to take first place and with strong support from bronze medallist Finlay Robb and 7th placed Chris Black the U17 trio were convincing winners. Cameron Taylor was the 4th Cambuslang athlete to finish. The senior women also scooped team gold thanks to […]
Members of Cambuslang Harriers have recently been in action at the European Triathlon and Athletics Championships in a very warm Munich, the Scottish U17 and Senior Track Championships in Aberdeen, the Scottish National Mid Distance Triathlon Championship in Aberfeldy, the Antrim Half Marathon and in various local road races. Grant Sheldon followed up his 5th place for Scotland in the Commonwealth Games by coming home in 15th spot and first finisher for the GB team in the European Triathlon Event. These 2 excellent performances have helped to reinstate Grant into the World’s Top 100 Rankings. Moira Stewart representing the […]
Cambuslang Harrier Grant Sheldon in his 3rd Commonwealth Games achieved his best position to date when finishing a superb 5th ahead of some of his more fancied rivals in the Individual Triathlon Event at Birmingham. In a star studded line up he came through strongly in the 3rd and last discipline, the 5K run, to move up to 5th behind event winner England’s Alex Yee, New Zealander Hayden Wilde and 2 Australians. His time of 15.15 on the hilly Sutton Coldfield course, the scene of numerous medal winning performances over the years by our Masters, was the 5th fastest split […]
The last few weeks have been a quieter time for members of Cambuslang Harriers. The major event during this period has been the Scottish Masters Track Championships held at Dundee. Although only 3 members participated, they lifted 5 medals between them. M55 Chris Upson won double gold medals, M50 Mark Gallacher silver and bronze and M60 Dave Thom a silver medal. Chris was victorious in both his 800 and 1500M races, Mark secured his bronze in the 800M with a pb and silver in the 1500M while Dave gained silver in the M60 5000M age group. Meanwhile Cameron Smith, Jamie […]
Members of Cambuslang Harriers were involved in various track, trail, hill and road races at the weekend. Gavin Smith and Chris McLew, assisted by team mate Jamie MacKinnon as pacemaker, filled the first 2 places in the A 1500M at the Livingston Open Meeting. Gavin’s time of 3.48.01 trimmed his pb by 0.01 of a second while Chris clocked 3.55.86. A persistent hamstring strain has unfortunately prevented Jamie, the current 1500M Scottish bronze medallist, from racing himself. U15 and U17 year olds Euan Reid (5.24.32) and Chris Black (4.53.85) laid down useful markers at this distance while Under 11 Ewan […]
Cambuslang member Chris Campbell not only climbed the 3 peaks of Snowden, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis in succession but also cycled between all 3 Welsh, English and Scottish highest mountains. His target was to accomplish this mammoth feat inside the time of 72 hours. Starting in Wales at 2.30am on Friday 17th June he amazingly covered the 25.5 miles and 11,000 feet of mountain climbing and 450 miles of cycling with 17,500 feet of climbing mostly into a head wind inside a remarkable 67 hours. Another way of measuring his 3 Peaks Self Propelled Achievement is to consider […]
Members of Cambuslang Harriers enjoyed considerable success in track, road, hill and triathlon competitions at the weekend. Ryan Thomson made a significant breakthrough when clocking 13.54.74 for the 5000M in the premier heat of the British Milers Club Grand Prix at Watford. His pb at the beginning of the year stood at 14.18 which he reduced to 14.11 and 14.01 in his 2 opening races of this season. Going into the Watford event on Friday Ryan was confident he could break the magic 14 minutes barrier if the conditions were right. The wind had fortunately eased by the time of […]
Several Cambuslang athletes have recently recorded track personal bests over different distances. Moira Stewart broke the Czech Republic women’s 10000M record when she clocked a superb pb of 32.08.96 in Paris when finishing 6th in the European Cup Championships. She now has the option of running in the 10000m or Marathon in the forthcoming European Championships to be staged in Munich. However, she is likely to opt for the longer distance. Ryan Thomson put in another impressive performance when lowering his 5000M pb to 14.01.22 at a race meeting in Belgium. He came agonizingly close to breaking the magical 14 […]
Members of Cambuslang Harriers have been involved in various track, road, hill and triathlon events in Scotland, England and Japan including Scottish representation for track runner Ryan Thomson and hill runner Kieran Cooper and GB representation for triathlete Grant Sheldon. This was a well-deserved honour for all 3 athletes and their families. Although Ryan has previously represented Scotland on the country this was his first Scottish vest on the track. He had been selected in 2017 for the 3000M at the Loughborough International but unfortunately he had to call off due to injury. However, his silver medal and pb performance […]
