Calderglen Harriers founded in 1984 is a running club for all levels of ability. Our aim is to promote road and cross country running in East Kilbride and its surrounding area. Racing is important to us and you will find that our training is geared towards improving your race performance and giving you the confidence and ability to take part in a variety of distance running events. If this sounds too serious, then you will be encouraged to see that many of our regular events are primarily social but also just happen to involve a run of some description.
At present the age group within the Club ranges from primary school age to those in the sixty plus category. We have a Junior and Senior section (16 years +) with the club to accommodate the age groups.
The Harriers train throughout the week. Mondays & Thursdays at 7.30pm are the Senior nights, Tuesday is a beginners group starting at 6.30pm, Wednesday at 6.30pm is the Junior training night. We have informal long Sunday runs organised by the senior athletes and our race calendar can find us racing mid week in the summer and at the weekends throughout the year at cross country, road running and trail race events to name but a few. We also take part in mass participation people’s half and full marathons such as Inverness and London.
We are always willing to encourage new members to come along and try out some training sessions without any compulsion to join the Club. Come along and make up your own mind.
Regardless of age, the Harriers all have one thing in common – a love of running.
