About the Club

Westerlands is a small to medium-sized running club based in the west end of Glasgow. The club specialises in hill and off-road running, and enjoys regular curry nights which it takes as seriously as its running.

Club History

Westerlands Cross Country Club was founded by Bill Sheridan in 1977 for postgraduates of Glasgow University. The club therefore began life as an offshoot of Glasgow Uni Hares & Hounds, before branching out into hill and off-road running.

Westerlands takes its name from the old Glasgow University Sports Ground at Anniesland. This facility no longer exists since the playing fields were sold off to property developers in the mid 1990s.
