Kilbarchan Amateur Athletic Club was formed in 1974, though there had been a previous club, going back to 1924. Club colours are gold vest with a broad black horizontal chest band. Although originating in the picturesque village of Kilbarchan, population around 5000, the Club’s main training bases are now in the neighbouring towns of Johnstone and Linwood, the latter having an all weather track adjacent to its Sports Centre.The club membership comes from Renfrewshire and the surrounding counties.

Now one of the top running clubs in Scotland, the club is attracting top athletes. As well as the elite athletes, the club has a good percentage of joggers just wanting to keep fit and the club would like to encourage runners of all abilities from 9 to 99 years old to come and join in our training evenings. There are a number of regular 10k and ½ marathon runners (1/2marathon times range from 65minutes to well over 2 hours). Handy for Glasgow Airport, International travellers are welcome to join in for a night’s training in the safety of running groups. Please contact our secretary (see below), for further details.

The club stages a number of events, including the first race of the autumn road relay season, the George Cummings 4×2.7 mile road relay which is run on the last Saturday of September along with a 3×2.7 ml race for women (The Trust Inn Trophy). It also organises annual Schools Invitation Cross Country races, Track and Field Trials, at least one Renfrewshire AAAs Championship event as well as several club events throughout the year.The club has a membership of around 300 male and female of all ages and abilities and it competes in cross-country, road running, hill running and track and field.
