The clock has started ticking, so now is the best time to start training for the Ignis Asset Management Women’s 10K taking place in Glasgow on Sunday 13 May.
To encourage the runners on the day, the organisers will have musicians at each 500m along the route – double the number of music spots in previous years. So drummer Dawn Gillies and piper Iona Brodie from the award winning Williamwood Pipe Band, braved the cold January afternoon of Wednesday 11 January to strut their stuff in Glasgow. They were supporting Clyde 1 radio presenters Knoxy and Sheban Littlejohn who are both running in the event – making it their very own 10 k – and helping to highlight that registration has opened online. www.runglasgow.org
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
