A rural point to point race starting and finishing at Kirkland Park, Strathaven. The route is an undulating steady climb for the first 6 miles followed by a largely undulating downhill component and is accurately measured. The race takes place through exposed elevated terrain and runners must be suitably attired for the race.
The race passes through some wonderful scenery including woodland and rural areas and at the half way stage passes by Whitelees Windfarm (the largest in Europe) where there are also stunning panoramic views over the Clyde Valley basin. We will be using chip timing -this means that you will receive an accurate and fast result for your start to finish line time.

Potentially a very exposed course due to location and the time of year, luckily conditions this year were close to perfect. Not a PB route but a good early season test.

No very well informed. Only thing I did not like was the water cups can't drink from them and run so had to stop which cost me time.

Did this race 3 times now. It's a winter race therefore you should wear layers and be prepare for the typical British weather. People should be told the very last stretch is a sharp turn up a smalll climb and onto a grass finish.

Was a great early start to 2018. The uphills are challenging but the downhills are ample reward.

Dont wear too much, wont take long before youre warmed up so the breeze is welcome as you get near the wind farm

Windy course, always forget how cold it can get, so a windproof jacket is probably a good shout!
