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
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
Bridging the gap between marathon and the longer ultras? The original Run the Blades length offers competitors the opportunity to step up from road marathon to ultra trail running.

Everyone loves a goody bag and we’re no different. Medal, t-shirt & a selection of other nice stuff.

There is on-site parking for all three events, however, we’re encouraging people to car share or use the shuttle buses that will be running from Glasgow or Eaglesham. This helps the logistics on the day and also reduces the carbon footprint of the event.
