As the young athletes enjoyed their night at their presentation night senior athletes were competing the Scottish 10000m Championships at Crownpoint. Top finisher was Lachlan Oates in a time of 30mins 31.11secs.Lachlan is slowly coming back to form after illness and in the coming months he is sure to come back to top form. The most unlucky person on the night was Avril Mason who was over a minute ahead of the winner of the women’s title (37.51.05) with her time of 36.50.08. Avril missed the closing date of championships entries so her time did not count and she was not awarded the National title.

Further results below : Chris McGarrity 31.03.46 , Daniel Bradford 31.11.35, Lucas Cheskin 32.52.36, Calum Oates 34.51.12, Iain Burns 35.20.33  M40 , Adam Peters 35.46.82

Abraham Lanahan ran 28.20 in the 200m and 4.62 in the Long Jump (both performance just outside his PB’s).

Young Athletics Presentation Night 2022

Photo’s from the Young athletes presentation night can be found on our flickr page. Many thanks to everyone who attended and who help  make the night such a success -Thank you to Cara Shearer (Scottish Athletics) who came along to support the club. 


There was yet again a good representation of Shettleston Harriers’ across the usual Parkruns.

The Plean Parkrun saw Michael Paxton easily taking first place in a decent time of 17.46. It has been great watching Michael’s well deserved success on the road and cross country recently.

It was then back across the south west to the Strathclyde parkrun where Scott McKelvie finally broke the 18 min barrier in 3rd place in 17.40. Scott has been working hard and again proves hard work eventually pays off.

It was then northwards to the notorious hills of Tollcross where Simon Gay was 10th and Tollcross local David Murphy finished in 13th place. Arlene McKenna took another 1st ladies position with another consistent run on the hilly course.

Back to the west end where Duncan Macauley finished in 24th place at Victoria Park in 19.31.

It was good to see Mark McColl back from having Covid with a cautious run at the hilly Ruchill Parkrun in 5th place.

Meanwhile at Drumpelier Parkrun, Kirsty Mann also continues to make excellent progress with 2nd female on the day.

Last but not least, it was over to the southside at Queens Parkrun where our very own Tom Owens came second place on what I understand to be a hilly course.

Well done to all club members !
