Bellahouston Road Runners was established in 1999 and became affiliated with Scottish Athletics in 2000, with the intention of promoting running and fitness for all. Originally based at Glasgow Ski Centre in Bellahouston Park (2000 – 2015), the Club moved to new facilities at Craigholme Sports Complex on the edge of Pollok Park in May 2015. Year after year the club has gone from strength to strength with its membership growing to more than 200.
Recent years have seen the Club become increasingly prominent on the local athletics scene with huge turnouts at events such as the Great Scottish Run and the Glasgow Women’s 10K. Both our women’s and men’s teams have been very successful in recent years participating in and winning events across the country.
While our top runners have performed magnificently, it is the growth in its core membership and the improvement in all its runners in which the Club has had its greatest success; we pride ourselves on our membership, which comes from all backgrounds, and our ability to cater for a wide range of runners from the more competitive to those who just enjoy running. All members actively support each other’s efforts and achievements. No matter what their level, the Club looks to develop the abilities of ALL its members.
We run two coached training nights per week, regularly getting between 40 and 100 people attending. These sessions are organised to help our runners achieve their personal goals. There are also more informal training runs at the weekend ranging from easy long distance runs to challenging hill and cross country routes.
The Club has a very active social side with regular social evenings and the annual Awards ceremony a highlight.
Whatever the sporting or social interests of its members, Bellahouston Road Runners does its best to cater for their needs.
