Run the Blades is back and it’s bigger and better than ever.

  • Sat 20 Jul 2024
Whitelee Windfarm Visitor Centre, Glasgow

Junior RTB



Age up to 16

  • 1 mile trail running


RTB has grown to become one of the largest trail running events in the UK and is a totally unique event held exclusively within the UK’s largest onshore wind farm, ScottishPower Renewables’ Whitelee Wind Farm, just a 20 minute drive from the 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. So, what to expect? Turbines towering 140 metres above your head, robust route signage, friendly marshals and support, the best race medal and amazing goody bag (we put the ‘good’ in goody bag), a vibrant Event Village with music, a cracking coffee van and food trucks. Three challenging routes and a bit of a hill to test yourself near the end.

This event is part of Run the Blades.
