Run the Blades
Run the Blades is a totally unique event held exclusively within the UK’s largest onshore wind farm, the Whitelee Wind Farm in Eaglesham, East Renfrewshire. Incorporating three distances – a 10k, half marathon and 50k ultramarathon – the event makes trail running accessible to runners of all fitness and experience levels.
All three challenging routes run across mixed moorland, through trees, and pass wind turbines that tower 140m above the trail - a mesmerising distraction from those burning muscles! On a clear day you can see Glasgow and even the coast of Northern Ireland in the distance. We encourage family and friends to come along for a fun filled weekend, with lots of excitement and tasty goods on offer at the vibrant event village. Run the Blades is fully supported by Whitelee Countryside Ranger Service and we value the support of the local Eaglesham community. 19/20 July.
