This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description


The route is circular, starting and finishing at the Strathaven Brewery, ML10 6PB. The race takes you through the Whitelee Windfarm, entering at the Ardochrig end and exiting at the Visitor Centre, Eaglesham. This Section gives views to Arran, Ailsa Craig and Ayrshire to the West, Greater Glasgow, Ben Lomond and The Campsie Hills to the North. Look South and you’ll see Tinto Hill. The Course varies from road to trail and includes a 11 mile section through the Whitelee Windfarm.
The cut off time for the Ultra race is 10 hours.
There will be 4 Checkpoints with drop bag facilities for the Ultra Race, the checkpoints and drop bags are at the relay change over points. Drop bags will be transported by the Race Organisers.
Individual entries are £40.00
The Relay Race requires 5 runners following the same route as the Ultra, a maximum distance of 11 miles per leg.
The Relay Change over points are below:
Strathaven Brewery to Ardochrig 10 miles trail and road
Ardochrig to Visitor Centre, Eaglesham 11 miles all trail
Visitor Centre, Eaglesham to Auldhouse 9.7 miles road
Auldhouse to Stonehouse 10 miles road
Stonehouse to Strathaven Brewery 6.40 miles trail and road
The cut off time for the 5 Person Relay race is 9 hours.
Designed for two running buddies who want longer than the relay options but not the whole 46 mile Ultra, an ideal stepping stone to move to the Ultra distance in 2023.

The Finish is at the Strathaven Brewery with a cut off of 9hrs

Tee or Tree?
This year you may opt for us to make a donation to Trees for Life rather than receiving a T Shirt.  The donation per person will be equivalent to the cost of a T shirt and will fund a single tree in the Strathaven Striders Grove.  We are aware that many of you have a drawer full of T shirts and may prefer to make a contribution to the environment rather than adding another T shirt to your collection. If you would prefer this option simply select 'Tree for Life' when asked for T shirt sizes. Trees for Life is a charity with a vision to revitalise wild forest in the Highlands of Scotland, providing space for wildlife to flourish and communities to thrive (
We look forward to seeing you on the start line.
Please join us on the JLM FB page and JLM Strava Group… If you haven’t already.
