About
Run the Blades is a totally unique event held exclusively within the UK’s largest onshore wind farm, Whitelee Wind Farm. The site offers a real feel for the great outdoors, but is a convenient 20 minute drive from the bustling centre of Glasgow. Incorporating three distances – a 10K, half marathon and 50K ultramarathon – the event makes trail running accessible to runners of all fitness and experience levels.

Route information
10K
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.
What's included
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.
