The SVHC Newsletter was published (three times a year) between the early 1970s and 2020. Here is a selection of articles and reports, which should provide a flavour of the publication and insight into the expanding Veteran (or Masters) Movement, which has succeeded in encouraging so many men and women to exercise, participate and compete, long after they ceased to be youngsters. The Scottish Veteran Harriers Club enables men and women (if they become fit enough) to compete for Scotland in any of the Masters five-year age-groups from 35 to 80 plus. All runners simply enjoy training, taking part in club and other events and doing their best on the day.
Unfortunately, it has proved impossible to include most tables of results; or indeed every inside-magazine photo; since the original work was pdf, which does not allow copy and paste duplication. Back and front cover colour photos have been included, however.
There are many aspects of these Newsletters to interest and give enjoyment to fans of running and athletics: not only race reports but also memories, profiles, experiences, meditations and historical reviews.
The individual magazines can be found via the links below.

Colin has done a superb job of work in getting all this work done to get the magazines on line. It has always been a good magazine with editors who did a power of work, but Colin should be congratulated on what has been achieved under his editorship – let’s all hope that another editor comes forward quickly. However he’s not finished yet – have a look at these four – hi selection of covers , his selection of articles and Tom O’Reilly’s account of his Island Peaks endeavours!
