Junior 5k Langlands Time Trial, Wednesday 1st June

This Wednesday is the monthly Langlands Time Trial for juniors.  I have posted last months times on private club Facebook page so everyone knows their previous time. The idea is to see what progress you have made over the last month.

It will consist of usual warm up to Langlands from the club, the time trial and cool down back to club.

If there are some runners who feel the warmup is too long for them, this month we are going to try alternative start for them. However, I would like were possible runners start from Sports Club.

The new start is at the red post box at Langlands Place, off Langlands Drive. The nearest company is Socotec and their postcode is G75 0YF.

Please meet there for 6.45pm and the rest of the pack will run by and pick you up. Mums and Dads dropping your child can you wait with them until pack picks them up. It will be safer to pick up your child from Sports Club at 8pm rather than post box.

Everyone else 6.30pm at Sports Club.

This time trial is for any u13/15/17 athletes that are in the senior group coached by Frances and Graeme.

Calderglen Harriers Trail Race 2022

After an absence since 2020 our club trail race returns on Friday 24th June 2022.

To remind everyone and new members this is a big event for our club to help raise money, raise our profile, and get as many local people as possible to run in a local event regardless of age.

So, the races and age groups are: -

1k under 9s born after 01/09/12                              

Starts at 6.10pm

3k u12 born between 01/09/2009 and 31/08/2012    

Starts at 6.30pm

3k u15 born between 01/09/2006 and 31/08/2009    

Starts at 6.30pm

5k born before 31/08/06                                          

Starts at 7.00pm

10k born before 24/06/06                                        

Starts at 7.30pm

As in previous years all current paid up juniors’ members can enter for FREE. To do this, I need to know by Wednesday 15th June at the least if you wish to take part.  So please see me at training so I can tick another list that you are doing it or not doing it.

Once entered you will receive an email confirmation from Entry Central confirming your child has been entered.

I know a few people run for more than one running club if this is you see me to agree what club name you want to be entered under. The more that run as Calderglen Harriers will increase chances of team prizes.

More details can be found on our race Facebook page and our Entry Central page:

Hope this is clear but feel to contact regarding any questions.

Springburn Harriers XC event - Sunday 27th February

Morning all,

Frances received an email from Springburn Harriers who are holding their XC event on Sunday 27th February in Kirkintilloch with first event starting at 0930 through to last event starting at 1020.

Looking at the link on Q Buster there is events from Primary 1 through to S6 so a big age range which is unusual.

They still have spaces at this event and would rather they get filled then not.

So, building on the success of the LAAA XC at the weekend and hopefully increased people’s interest to race, please feel free to enter your son or daughter via the Q Buster link. The race fees are all £4 and closing date is Thursday 24th February.

Unfortunately, there will be no club representative from Calderglen Harriers able to act as a chaperone. Therefore, you will need to remain there to look after your son or daughter.

Good luck to anyone who chooses to do it, remember to wear your running vest and as always tell us how you get on. Even a nice picture is always good to see.

Morning All,

We have taken a risk assessment and due to the high winds through the day and in particular after 4pm today, we have cancelled tonight’s training.

I put a brief post on our private junior Facebook, sent an email to all to this effect.

Kind Regards

Richard Lawton
Junior Coordinator
