Event of the Week

Run the Blades

FRIDAY & SATURDAY 20/21 JULY

 

Run the Blades incorporates three distances: a 10K on the Friday evening, and a half marathon and 50K ultra on the Saturday. The choice of three race distances makes Run the Blades accessible to all runners, whatever your experience or fitness level.

The event is an ideal step up from road to trail, offering hard-packed yet challenging terrain. Whether you’re looking to record a new personal best, or you’re keen to sign up for your first trail run, look no further.

The unique routes are located exclusively within Whitelee Wind Farm, the UK’s largest onshore wind farm, just south of Glasgow. The picturesque landscape boasts mixed moorland and trees, intertwined with wind turbines that tower above the trail.

Our friendly and experienced marshals will be there to cheer you along the way. The 2018 edition will introduce a vibrant event village and additional parking, which will warmly welcome families and spectators for a fun-filled weekend. Expect artisan coffee roasters, a variety of delicious street food, live music, kid’s entertainment and more. Finishers will receive an awesome medal, t-shirt and goody bag!
