    • Did the event in 2018

      Registration, pre-information and event startRegistration was easy and a pre-information pack was emailed out well in advanced with everything you could need to know. The organisers are really friendly, even on the day they were greeting everyone like old friends which creates a lovely vibe.Race bibs were not posted but collected before the event (adjacent to start line) by extremely friendly and helpful event staff – they provided pins if required.On site free parking was provided and marshalled, just 20mins from Glasgow City Centre and is easy to get to by car. The later you arrived, the further away you needed to park. If you were v late this could be a 1km walk but this was specified in the pre-information leaflet – my partner drove so I just jumped out near the start while he went and parked. A shuttle bus also operated to save those legs!! At the event village there are some very good quality stalls selling hats, coffee, pizza and vegan food. And a short walk to the main Whitelee visitor centre.The runThe race is an exciting loop that follows the trails of the Whitelee Wind Farm site. It is well sign posted and had two water stops with friendly marshals and a portaloo!There is no crowd support except on the finish straight but you don’t do a run like this for cheerleaders, it’s all about the nature, beauty and challenge.I loved the course and the run, it is challenging with 681ft of elevation during the course. There is a killer hill at mile 11, so make sure you keep something in reserve for that!I finished 8th in 1:28:25 and ran most of the run by myself with a distant figure up ahead and a couple behind, which is quite unique for a half marathon.Goodie bagThe medal is first-rate and has a spinning windmill. Goodie bag was the best ever – including: windmill socks, naked bar, banana, jelly babies, t-shirt, energy bar, plus the actual bag was good quality.Big bonus -- Over 1000 runner photos are provided for free by the event on facebook and through photographer’s website – that is amazing in itself, most runners have a personal finisher’s pic and the quality is excellent.

      Living so close and walking with my dogs on a regular basis at Whitelee Windfarm, this half marathon became a no brainer for me to enter to run my first half marathon and trail run at the same time. Seems bizarre that I have never run a half marathon when I have done the full marathon in London first!Sign up through Breaking Strain events website was really easy and all of the information supplied to us regarding the course and setup was flawless and regular.On the day, we parked in the local primary school and the event supplied regular buses to the Windfarm as running the event there does not allow the amount of cars that would need to be parked there for obvious reasons! The weather forecast did not look great for the day, however when you are running you don't seem to notice it anyway. It was quite funny when you hear a lot of people commenting that it was very windy! It is a windfarm after all!To the race, safety briefing took place and we set off promptly at 10am. Such a beautiful setting to start a race as we headed down the first hill which then flattened out for the first mile. Not so much a technical trail race, however some loose stones and bigger rocks under foot at times made you need to concentrate on your technique and foot placement throughout. The race headed downhill for the first 5 miles or so with only a few small uphills towards the 10k (water station - missed my haribos!) and 7 mile mark! The race then takes a turn up towards the stunning reservoir and obviously if you start at the top of the hill and head down, you gotta head back up the way. Between 7 and 11 miles, the hills seemed gradual with only a little pace slowing but nothing major, although as your run along the reservoir on one side, you do have a glimpse of the 'everest' on the other side towards the finish!With some wet slippery cattle grids to cross - good fun and a bit different - we headed towards the last 2 miles. I felt great on the big hill and had to encourage a few of the walkers to keep running but did leave them to it and kept running. At the top of it, I thought it was fairly flat until the finish but I forgot about the hill we came down at the start. One final push up this hill and a fairly flat last 100m to the finish made for a very enjoyable half. Not running this for time with no expectations, I was really pleased with my 1:45:17! Results were live online also which, in a remote area is always great to see also!From my picture you will see that I am still part of the poor man's #visorclub and worse than that, didn't see any RaceCheck visor's there on the course! You might need to sort this!A great race that I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for something a bit different. 3 great options also with the 10k, half marathon and 50k Ultra (they took a battering with the weather!)Will certainly look to sign up to more events from Breaking Strain and also take part next year again!
