The Turbine 10k
15 Sep 13
Scotland and Northern Ireland
Baillie Wind Farm, Caithness
10K: £10 4K: £2
This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
It may be just a little bit outside the official Fortnight, but we like the idea of a 10k run through a wind farm so much we thought we'd include it here!
The Turbine 10 is the first and only 10-kilometre course at a Scottish Highland wind farm which will this autumn mark the inauguration of one of Scotland’s newest green energy sites. Runners will take to the undulating service tracks around Baillie Wind Farm, in Caithness, for the event, which takes place on Sunday 15 September. On route green energy enthusiasts can get up close to many of the site’s 110-metre high turbines and enjoy spectacular 360-degree views of Caithness and the Orkney Islands.
This charity event is suitable for runners of all abilities and includes a 4K Fun Run or Walk around Baillie Wind Farm’s perimeter track. All finishers will receive a medal, goody bag and T shirt and special prizes are on offer for the fastest runners and well as the lucky children who win the ‘Name the Turbine’ competition.
Entry is just £10 for the 10K via Entry Central or £2 for the Fun Run, payable on event day. All proceeds from event entries will be donated to our three event charities Moray Firth Radio ‘Cash for Kids’ appeal; the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) and the North Highland Cancer Information and Support Centre.
