1940s to 1990s

1940s Success

McAndrew and Kingsway saw Maryhill victorious in most of the 1940s relay races. The first ever Nigel Barge Road Race was run on 1st January, 1943 and is still being organised by the Maryhill Harriers today.

The 50s and 60s

During the 1950s and 1960s membership dwindled to the low 20s. The principal causes being the lack of facilities for athletes in the area and the depopulation of the Maryhill district, which affected all sports.

The 1970s

1970 saw the end of 49 years of the club members being secretaries of the Western District through George Dallas, Dunky Wright and Fred Graham. Fred was appointed team manager for the 1970 Commonwealth Games and elected president of the S.AAA in 1972.

Scottish Veteran Harriers

The 1970s also saw the start of the Scottish Veteran Harriers movement. Maryhill once again showed they were a force to be reckoned with by winning the British Vets over 50 Championships Team Race in 1971, 1972 and 1973 along with various individual British and Scottish Championships.

The 80s and 90s

The 1980s and 1990s were rather lean years for the club, especially at junior and senior levels. It was left to the veterans of the club to keep Maryhill Harriers in the news, through`World, European and British victories by Gordon Porteous.
