About Giffnock North Amateur Athletic Club

Giffnock North Amateur Athletic Club was originally founded as a football club in 1943 and now embraces many sports, not least the Athletics Section. The "Running Section" as it was originally known was formed during the marathon boom in 1982 and was predominantly a road running club. In 1990, to preserve the long-term future of the club, a junior section was introduced. The emphasis from a road, to a track and field club, resulted in a section name change from 'Running' to 'Athletic' and has been the cornerstone of our success to date. Current memberships stands in the region of 160 seniors and 300 juniors.

Road, hill and cross country running is catered for with entry of events nationwide including County, District and National Championships in all age groups, under 11, 13, 15, 17, 20, senior & veteran categories covering both sexes.

The club currently holds various titles, individual and team from County to National level, most of which can be attributed to the astonishing success of the Junior Section. Numerous Giffnock North athletes have represented Renfrewshire, the West District and Scotland on many occasions. Many of our athletes also feature in the Scottish and UK rankings and can also be found participating in marathons throughout the world.

Throughout the year the club also organises and hosts events, notably the Rouken Glen 10k and a schools cross country event which attracts entries of up to 500.
