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!

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.

Carnegie Harriers Training – March 2019

Here are details of our training sessions for the month of March. More detailed information can be found on our website:

Please note that sessions may be changed or cancelled at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances, such as bad weather, problems with the venue etc.
It can be more difficult to be motivated to get out and run, especially in inclement weather and on dark evenings. One of the benefits of being a member of a running club is that it's much easier to run in company.

Non Members Welcome
Non-members are welcome to come along to try out our sessions anytime. Don't worry if you don't understand some of the technical details, the sessions are explained in more detail on the night. Also, don’t be put off by description of the sessions, you need only do as much as you want or feel able.

If you are planning to come along for the first time, we would ask that you contact us first, preferably by email to and let us know a little about your experience as a runner, such as how often you train, how far and what pace, also any recent race times. We can then provide you with a bit more information on the club and arrange to meet you on the night.
As we aim to start the sessions promptly, please make sure you turn up in good time so that we can say hello before we hear the pre-session briefing.

Session Aims
All of our training is aimed at creating long-term physical changes in the body, referred to as adaptations. Key among this is the principle of overload, where the body is pushed beyond its normal rhythm. Overloading should be gradual over time to avoid causing injury.

The number of repetitions and the pace at which they are to be run are for guidance only. If you are tapering before, or recovering after, a big race, or returning from illness/injury or just had a really bad day, you can reduce the number of repetitions, or the pace, or both.

Session Details
Although we’ll be based on both nights at Pitreavie Sport and Soccer Centre, there will be an alternative meeting point on Tuesdays closer to the session start for anyone who feels the run there and back is a bit too far, or would take too long. Options will be explained to you when you get in touch to enquire about coming along.
On Tuesday evenings we’ll be using a largely traffic-free loop starting on Lapwing Drive for a series of same duration intervals, with an increase in pace for the second half of the session.

On Thursdays we’ll be using Pitreavie Industrial Estate for same pace 400 metre efforts.
Don’t worry if these sound a bit scary, a full explanation is given before the start of each session and there is an opportunity for you to ask questions if you’re not sure about anything.

The session start times listed are the times we leave from Pitreavie Sport and Soccer Centre to head to the specified venue on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The training sessions proper start approximately 20 minutes later and anyone going direct to the session starting points on either evening is asked to make sure they leave time to warm up properly before the sessions start.
