Run for fun
January 9, 2012 by Grace Franklin
While New Year resolutions to get fit are still around, the Ignis Asset Management Women’s 10k is being promoted for the 20th year. Clyde 1 presenters Knoxy and Shebahn Littlejohn will formally launch the event on Wednesday this week to the female drummers and pipers of the famous Williamwood Pipe Band. The musical involvement highlights the fact that there will be music every 500m of the popular run to boost flagging runners’ spirits and to add to the fun-day atmosphere.
Taking place on Sunday 13 May starting at Nithsdale Road, the race attracts around 10,000 runners who will progress through the Southside via Maxwell Park, Pollok Park to the finishing line in Bellahouston Park. To sign up or for more information, see the website: www.runglasgow.org
