Cambuslang Harriers Men and Women enjoy a field day at the West District Cross Country Relay Championships
Junior, senior and masters athletes of Cambuslang Harriers travelled to Kilmarnock to participate in the West District Cross Country Relays on Saturday 12th October. Senior and masters men teams comprised of 4 runners, 3 for their female counterparts and 3 athletes, one under 13, 15 and 17, were required for the young male and female teams. It was a very successful day for the seniors and masters as the senior and masters men won double gold and the female masters took the bronze medals. This was the first senior men team victory since 2012 while the masters men continued their […]
The main domestic event of the weekend was the Great Scottish Run which offered 2 races namely at 10K and the Half Marathon. The Half Marathon incorporated the Scottish Championships and the Cambuslang Harriers trio of Stewart Gibson, Fraser Stewart and Kevan Harvey packed well to take the bronze medals behind Shettleston Harriers and Fife AC. Only 31 seconds separated the 3 sub 70 minutes Cambuslang athletes with Stuart (69.08) only 5 seconds outside his pb, Fraser’s time of 69.39 was a 46 seconds pb and Kevan on the same time made an impressive debut at this distance. The club […]
Cambuslang Harriers had a good representation at the Scottish Masters Cross Country Trial for the forthcoming British and Irish Masters Cross Country International. The trial was held over an undulating course in Tollcross Park and athletes were competing for Scottish selection in 5 year age group bandings from the ages of 35 to 75. Athlete selection for the various Scottish age group teams is based partly on performance in the trial race and also on results in other recent events. A number of Cambuslang athletes looked to have gained automatic selection by finishing in the first 2 places of their […]
Apologies for the report being a week late, webmasters fault, not Dave Cooneys. Cambuslang’s Grant Sheldon was one of the pre race favourites to lift the Scottish Men’s 10K Road Championship at Stirling having been victorious in 2017 and runner up in 2019. The quality of the assembled field of over 600 runners was enhanced by the inclusion of teams from the English Midlands and Northern Ireland. Normally in this event a large group of athletes will run together for the first 3 to 4 kilometres before someone attempts a breakaway. However, this year Omar Ahmed, an Ethiopian running for […]
Cambuslang Harriers made a rare but successful appearance as a team in the recent Scottish Hill Running Championships at Broughton and came away with team bronze medals thanks to hill specialists Alasdair Campbell, Iain MacCorquodale and Justin Carter. This was the club’s first ever national team medals on the hills. Icing was added to the cake when Justin was awarded the M40 Scottish title and our 4th runner Craig Jardine lifted the U23 bronze medal. One week later attention turned to the Scottish Masters 10,000M Track Championships at Carluke and the club was rewarded with 3 gold medals. Stuart Gibson […]
Cambuslang Harriers Down by the River 10K and 3K Road Race Races, staged entirely on the Clyde Walkway apart from the initial and final 200 metres, attracted 128 and 33 competitors respectively. The club is extremely grateful to our 10K sponsors namely achilles heel, our kit partner, Macdet Hygiene Services, a family company started up by former member Jim Fitzpatrick now sadly deceased and club member Barnie Gough and to our 3K sponsor City Building Engineering Services. In the officially measured 10K race the hosts dominated the male prizes while the ladies prizes were more evenly spread out. Cambuslang took […]

20 athletes from Cambuslang Harriers lined up with over 460 others to compete in Friday evening’s Scottish 5K Road Championship held over a flat fast course along the promenade at Silverknowes Edinburgh. Conditions were windy and surprisingly cold for this time of the year. Cambuslang’s main hope for a team medal lay with the U20 men in spite of the late withdrawal due to injury of top runner Gavin Smith. The club’s aspirations were realised as an inspired trio of Drew Pollock, Jamie MacKinnom and Andrew Carey took the silver medals only 4 points adrift of Edinburgh University. First finisher […]

Cambuslang were accompanied by their Edinburgh rivals Corstorphine who had won the Scottish 6 stage in 2018. Kevin Harvey started the race for Cambuslang and found himself in a really […]
