Run With The Wind – Half Marathon

September 22 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

£20 – £22

The 2024 edition of the Run With The Wind Half Marathon will return to the popular pre-2019 circular route over Ardochrig close to the eastern end of Whitelee Wind Farm.  It will follow an anti-clockwise route over quiet and undulating roads to the west of Strathaven climbing to its highest point at the halfway mark (the eastern wind farm entrance at Ardochrig). Details of the 2024 route may be found here: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/5882546542.   The route will be officially measured and the half marathon distance verified.

The race HQ and registration will be in Strathaven Academy (ML10 6DP).   We will utilise the Academy for registration, changing, toilets, post event refreshments and prizegiving.  There is  ample car parking in the public car parks throughout Strathaven but please note there is no parking at the Academy or adjacent Leisure Centre

Registration will take place from 08.30 at the Strathaven Academy and the race will start at 10.00 in Kirkland Park.  Registration will close at 09.50 prompt to allow transition to the start line which will be near to Kirkland Park School.   Marshalls will be in place to guide runners to the start line.

The race will be chip timed and race results posted on the chip timers’ web site within 24 hours of the race completion. All competitors will receive a refreshment and memento at the finish.   In an effort to keep entry costs as low as possible there will be no finisher T shirts, however, a limited number of T Shirts will be available for purchase at race HQ.  Given adverse weather on the day the race may be rescheduled with as much advance notice as possible.

Prizes will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female runners overall and to first place male and female in each of the age group categories.  The race results will also provide overall and age group positions.

The race is a Scottish Athletics Permit Event – under UK Athletics Rules
