Welcome to Carnegie Harriers

Carnegie Harriers

If you love to run…. on the road, under the sun, cross country, in the snow, on the trails, in the rain, in the hills, in a team, as far as you can…. Carnegie Harriers is the club for you!

Celebrating 30 Years 1991 to 2021

Whatever the distance or the discipline, there’s a good chance that a Harrier has been there, done it, and got the tee-shirt (or race memento) to prove it.

Whatever your interest, we welcome new members who have some running experience or a reasonable level of fitness. Explore our website to find out more about what our club has to offer you. Our latest news can be found here  and if you need to know more, or want to come along and try one of our regular training sessions, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Following current government and Scottish Athletics guidelines, Carnegie Harriers are delighted to be back to formal training sessions. We are continuing to cater for our members needs by providing a Grand Prix race series running from October through to March 2022 comprising a mix of open races and members only events, details of which will be made available to new members when they join the club.

Carnegie Harriers
Devilla Trail Races 2022Folks, This year, Carnegie Harriers had planned to host the 10th anniversary running of the ever-popular Devilla Forest Trail Races on Sunday 13th February. However, after much deliberating, Carnegie Harriers has decided that unfortunately, the races cannot go ahead as planned this year. The reasons for this decision are related to both Storm Arwen and Covid. We are all extremely disappointed to have to share this news, especially as last year's event was also cancelled.While for most of us November's Storm Arwen is fading into the distance, woodland and forests across Scotland have been badly impacted. There are still several clumps of fallen trees blocking key paths in Devilla forest. Some are passable with care but not for several hundred racers. Even if the race directors decided that the fallen tree obstacles were tolerable, the club has not yet been given formal permission to host the race on the Forestry land. The race licence and insurance would be void if we do not have landowners' permission to race. Due to the volume of work needed to assess the impact of Storm Arwen across its lands, Forest and Land Scotland have been unable to give any assurance that the fallen trees would be cleared and event permission granted before 13th February. We do not feel it would be appropriate to open entries without this permission in place.The possibility of postponing the event was investigated but, unfortunately, Tulliallan was not available on any of our preferred alternative dates.For Covid reasons, we would not be able to hold a prize giving in the assembly area of Tulliallan Police College, access to registration would be very restricted, changing rooms would not be available, the cafe would not be open and portaloos would be needed to reduce and minimise close contact. Additionally, the number of places available would have been lower than normal to reduce congestion at key points in and around the college and on course. If Covid had been the only factor under consideration, mitigations could have been put in place, although this would have impacted considerably on the vibe and feel of the race. We very much hope that the 10th anniversary race will take place in 2023, and Carnegie Harriers look forward to making it a very special event. At this time, Carnegie Harriers still plan to host the Graham Clark race at Knockhill in summer 2022, and more details will be shared when Knockhill's availability is confirmed. ... See MoreSee Less
