    Moira and Grant Raise the Bar over the Easter Weekend

    Moira Stewart who in recent years has won individual silver and bronze senior ladies Scottish Cross Country Championship medals representing Cambuslang Harriers made a spectacular marathon debut on Easter Sunday in the Swiss Athletics Marathon at Belp.   She finished 3rd lady clocking 2.29.39 which was tantalisingly only 9 seconds away from an automatic Olympic place in the Czech Republic team. The race was staged by Swiss Athletics to help some of their athletes and a few non Swiss guests record an Olympic qualifying time.  A small field of 18 men and 5 women including pacemakers set out on a flat […]

    A Virtual Event Combined with the Inter District Competition

    The first Virtual Road Event of 2021 dovetailed with the customary January Inter District Event between athletes from the East, North and West Districts. Normally selection for the Inter District Competition is based on performance in the preceding December District Races. However, due to the cancellation of live races on account of the Covid 19 lockdown, the Inter District scoring for the 6 different age groups was to be based on the top 15 eligible counters in the virtual event, male and female, from each of the 3 Scottish Districts. A healthy entry from club members across Scotland was therefore […]

    RUNNERS FACE CHALLENGING CONDITIONS IN THE VIRTUAL ROAD CHALLENGE

    The latest Lindsays Virtual Road Challenge took place between Friday 8th and Monday the 11th of January.  The new Covid 19 restrictions meant that all runs for the different age groups had to be solo efforts.  34 Cambuslang athletes had signed up for the event although in the end only 16 members participated due to the icy conditions prevailing at that time.  This drop in numbers was reflected across Scotland as many runners opted out not wishing to risk injury on slippy roads and pavements. Our 16 brave athletes deserve credit for just getting safely round their chosen routes and […]

    Club update 4th Jan 2021

    Dear members and friends, with the announcement by the FM today it is clear we are in lockdown for the foreseeable future, although we await on an update from SAL as to what this means for sport. For now, this means that club activities are suspended and that meeting up for group sessions at the Rugby Club or elsewhere must stop until further notice. This is obviously very disappointing for us all. However, all is not doom and gloom. Here is what you can do:  You can still exercise in a group of 2 only. We will publish on the […]

    CAMBUSLANG HARRIERS PERFORM OVER 3 AND 5K ON THE ROAD

    Members of Cambuslang Harriers were involved last weekend in a Club 5K and in the Scottish Athletics Virtual 3K Run which was the qualifier for the Scottish Short Course Cross Country Event.  The necessary health and safety precaution on the quiet and largely unused Shawfield circuit were again put in place by the club.  As previously the 16 5K runners were arranged into smaller groups with staggered starts and the same principle was applied to the 13 under 15, 17 and 20 3K athletes present.  Occasions such as this could not be held without the careful thought and planning of […]
