Run the Blades

Date & Location


Organiser’s Description

In 2015, runners braved near-hurricane strength winds and ridiculous driving rain to tackle the inaugural Run the Blades, but despite this there were some cracking times. Bridging the gap between marathon distance and the longer ultras, the Run the Blades 50k offers the opportunity to step up from road to trail, and an introduction to ultra running. This year, we’re looking at an even bigger and better event with 3 distances taking place: 50k, half marathon and 10k. Stunning yet exposed landscape and 20 minutes from central Glasgow, this challenging course crosses mixed moorland, travels through forests and past wind turbines that tower 140 metres above the trail.
