  • Did the event in 2018

    Registration- Due to me pacing at the event It was really smooth and great communication.Parking – Town was cut off so you had to use the carpark’s close by. Of which there were plenty and the race booklet had all the information, These were very easy to access due to the info that was sent out in an email from the great run.Toilets – A very large amount at the start and at the finsh Start of the race was a quick brief to everyone which was very clear, followed by a group warm up as per every great run series.The race,This was an excellent turn out and from the first couple of miles we already had a massive crowd following us. The route was lovely and I found it to be really relaxing and peaceful . The crowds were very good and were scattered well over the 13.1 miles. We went through town then hit the country lanes. Some of the route was a little tight but that soon changed after a few miles. The water stations were all well managed with wheelie bins next to them so that people could throw their own bottles into them.  I did notice gels at one of the stations so that was really helpful for some runners. What I loved about this race was the atmosphere and the way the runners helped one another. On the day of the event was also the marathon which caused a few issues along the route. No lanes had been separated for either the half or the full. Both groups would be joining each other at some point which just didn’t work . Myself and Phil (pacer) on numerous occasions had to shout out to people to keep to one side to let the marathon runners by . This definitely needs to be addressed for next year . Approaching the end of the race the rain had started to fall heavily but this didn’t stop the crowds gathering and cheering . Running through the town centre was amazing because everyone seemed to stop what they were doing and jusyt come out to support. Now this next part was definitely not what we wanted to happen at the end of a race. Throughout the run we had planned to come in within 30 seconds. Mile 7 and 8  were both really short miles so we knew something wasn’t right. I always wear two garmins for back up so that I can compare , both watches were dead on ! Approaching the town centre I knew we had about half a mile to go . I could see a bend in the road and I worked out that once around this corner would be about the finish within a few minutes or so. Around the corner the sign read 400 metres to go but I knew, we really should have only about 200 metres to go . Luckily for us, mile 12 we had already told our large group to run ahead as we normally would of at this time.The finish line just never seemed to arrive  and we finished the race covering 13.35 miles. This isn’t good if you are trying for a pb. Apart from this little set back and the marathons runners, It was truly a great event.  I look forward to pacing again next year with my partner phil. Thank you Stirling half marathon . #finishwithasmile
  • Did the event in 2018

    This was my first ever marathon, though I had done a couple of Great Run events before, but over shorter distances.Lots of information was provided beforehand about the race, the local area, and building up excitement as the race date approached. This included information about how to get to the start and where to park.Because I know the area well, I chose to take an alternative route to the car park for the marathon runners close to the start. I had no problems finding the area and getting into the car park, but I am aware that many runners who did follow the official guidance for how to get to the car park face major traffic jams and had trouble even getting to the start. In my view the organisers should have recommended two routes to the start - one for those coming from the north and another for those coming from the south. While I had no problems, it must have been a nightmare for those who ended up stuck in long traffic jams and panicking before the start.At the start area there were lots of toilets and buses for dropping your bags into which were then transported to the end. There were staff on hand to assist, but there was no Great Run Information point, as this was at the finish area which was about a mile away. The weather at the start was a little cold, but with no wind so it was perfect for running.The initial part of the course was very flat as it led out of Stirling into the countryside and it got progressively more hilly as we made our way towards the halfway point at Dunblane. As we ran through villages on the route there was a lot of support, but the majority of the course was on rural roads so there were few spectators. Those that did come out provided great encouragement.There were regular water stations with toilets along the route, but at the first water station a lot of people had just dumped their bottles along the side of the road as there were no rubbish bins nearby. Later on the course there were bins and also in some small villages there were refuse collectors with bags where rubbish could be deposited.The second half of the course started with a long downhill section into Bridge of Allan where, again, there was good support and encouragement. The course took in a loop of Stirling University and this was again a bit hilly which, after about sixteen miles, was quite tough (for me at least). The course then merged with the half marathon course - which had started an hour after the marathon race - so it was slightly confusing as there were then mile markers for both races at different positions. This was also when it began to rain quite heavily.By the time I came through this section the field was very spread out so I did not have any issues (as I heard from others) of runners struggling to overtake in the crowded lanes. This part of the course was very rural and scenic and essentially took in a single track road at one point. There were very few supporters along this part of the course.At a couple of the water stations, gels were also offered but I had my own so did not use any of those provided by the organisers. As we got to beyond the twenty two mile mark we were on long straights of a dual carriageway until we eventually got back into Stirling City Centre for the finish.Again the crowds were thin through this area, but there were good crowds and lots of encouragement in the centre itself as we headed towards the finish line. The last mile or so was pretty much uphill which, after twenty five miles, was a really tough way to finish.The finishing area had lots of stalls, activities and food and drink on offer. The buses were close by and it was easy to retrieve my stuff, meet up with my family and get something to eat and drink. The walk back to our car was around a mile, but at least it was downhill :-)I really enjoyed the event though it would have been nicer to have more support in some of the more rural areas. The course was very scenic and a bit hillier than I was expecting. Next year the run clashes with the London Marathon so I do wonder if that will impact on numbers of runners or spectators.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Was a pacer so place was free.  Cost seems reasonable for price on closed roads.Registration straight forward and effective.It finishes in a huge Park with plentiful on things to keep the kids going if they are waiting for you. Main town about 1.5km from the park if cold etc.Lots of stalls and a live band this year also.  So zero complaints from the better half.  You also have view over the castle.Start line is about a km walk from the park in which you end.  So OK.Considering the local topology it manages to be fairly flat.  not flat flat. Worst bit in the half at least being the last km or so... Akin to the end of Leicester if you know it.However the crowds on this section are great.Out the backend not much support but you get wonderful views of the Scottish country side.One section around a school is a big strange but OK.Only down side was the attitude of some of the Marathon runners coming through the half marathon field. 95% are fine.  5% swing the I'm better then you half lot so move.. The worse of which being a 100 marathon member. You think they would know better.... This has nothing to do with the race as the half people where given fair warning and I'm sure the full crew where also informed... Can be a little off putting seeing multiple mile signs as well.Also

  • 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.
  • Did the event in 2017

    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!

  • Did the event in 2018

    I was pleasantly surprised by this run as I usually run trails. To have the crowd support did deliver a new dynamic to me aside from the usual couple of people every now and again. It is a fast course and has good potential for pb. I would run this again as it has a well organised but fun atmosphere and I would recommend it to anybody a big thumbs up from me.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Apart from the hill at the beginning this race is fairly flat with the odd little hill but a downhill straight afterwards. I thoroughly enjoyed the route. A lovely run through 2 parks and a great finish in the City Centre. Would definitely do again.
  • Did the event in 2017

    I have given this race a high rating as I cannot fault the organisation of the race. As you'd expect with anything organised by the Great Run series, it was very slick. As this was a point to point race starting in George Square and finishing in Glasgow Green, there were baggage buses which were well organised and there was no problem picking up my stuff at the end.The weather was dreadful on the day with drizzly rain and, at one point, quite high winds as we ran through Bellahouston Park. I was also recovering from a nasty cold and felt dreadful.  However, the route was enjoyable and I have given it a high rating because it covered so many great Glasgow landmarks. Running over the Kingston Bridge and through Pollok Park were highlights for me. The leaves on the trees in Pollok Park were just turning to orange and it was a great autumn display.There was a nice T shirt, medal and goody bag at the end. Plenty of water was also available. Overall a great race, well worth doing.

  • Did the Big Belter in 2018

    The Route: Busy A roads, industrial estates, and roads in such a shocking state that youd think twice about driving a car over them (potholes, farm detritus, and in some sections in the last 10 miles, no perceivable road surface just a patchwork of holes and bumps).Bad route planning too e.g. lots of very tight turns on descents and high speed sections. Shocking state of road on entering Ingleston at end (washboard concrete road with gravel scattered about).Terrible feed stations very poor choice, and very little of it.No access to the event when official transport arrived at Glasgow Green (marshals hadnt opened it yet).A goody-bag that consisted of one leaflet and a bottle of water.A feed station that required all the riders to take their shoes off before entering.This is now a bike ride that, wait for it, tells all the riders to get off their bikes before crossing the finishing line. A treat greeting riders at the end of 100 miles is being shouted at to get off your bike as you approach the finish line.Still waiting for my chip time (3 days and counting).
