Run the Blades 50K Ultra

Run the Blades is a totally unique event being held exclusively within the UK’s largest windfarm, Whitelee Windfarm (and it’s only 20 minutes from Glasgow)! With three distances (10K, half marathon and 50K ultramarathon) Run the Blades makes trail running accessible for runners of all fitness and experience levels. Bridging the gap between marathon distance and the longer ultras, the original Run the Blades affords competitors the opportunity to step up from road marathon to ultra trail running.

All three distances offer a challenging course across mixed moorland and forests past wind turbines that tower 140 metres above the trail. Fully supported by Whitelee Countryside Ranger Service you’ll maybe chance upon one of the hundreds of species of birds, adders or deer that live within the boundaries of the wind farm. On a clear day you’ll be able to see Glasgow and in the distance even the coast of Northern Ireland.
