Provisional date: 28th March 2025 

Think you know Run the Blades? Try again. At just over a 10K (10.4K to be exact) don’t expect this to be easy as you run the trails with the turbine blades sweeping out of sight above your head.

Back for a fourth year, Run the Blades – the Night One, where runners take to the trails in the dark with the route lit only by glow sticks and the strength of their own head torch.

Held within the UK’s largest onshore wind farm, ScottishPower Renewables’ Whitelee Wind Farm, just  a  20 minute drive from the centre of Glasgow. 

Bring your head torch and a sense of adventure.
