Held within the stunning yet exposed landscape of Whitelee Wind Farm, 20 minutes from Central Glasgow, the event offers 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.

This year, we’re looking at an even bigger and better event with three distances taking place on the same date. The headline 50K ultramarathon will be joined by a half marathon and 10K. These will all be run on trails so if you’re looking to transition from road running, Run the Blades provides the perfect opportunity.

10K 

  • 10K (Friday 21st 1930 hours): £25 (early bird at £22)

A perfect introduction to trail running around a relatively easy but rolling route. You’ll be hard pushed to find a 10K near Glasgow with scenery as good as this. Limited spaces.

Half Marathon 

  • Half marathon (Saturday 22nd 0900 hours): £28 (early bird at £25)

So you’ve bagged a few 10Ks but don’t fancy the big dunter just yet, then the half marathon is the race for you. The perfect distance to raise money for your favourite charity.

50K Ultra 

  • 50K (Saturday 22nd 0900 hours): £35 (early bird £31)

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.
