Welcome to Gala Harriers

The Club founded in 1902 is based in Galashiels  in the Scottish Borders and has around 120 adult and 150 junior members. The Commonwealth Games in Glasgow 2014 was a spectacular display of world-class sporting talent. But success won’t just be measured in medals. It’ll be measured in the number of people getting active and making use of the facilities available in our communities. You can join Gala Harriers and become part of this legacy. Junior and senior membership for the 2015/16 season starts 1st April 15.  However from the 1st February 2015  - 31st March 2015 new athletes/runners can  just come along and give it a try only £1 per session.
