Pix by Ian Watson: Radio Clyde presenters Sheban Littlejohn and Knoxy take the 10K as their own with drummer Dawn Gillies and piper Iona Brodie spurring them on.

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

Sheban is also in training for the World Irish Dancing championships in Dublin just before the 10k in Glasgow. She said: The race training is good for it gives me stamina. The dancing is a ‘just go for it’ in the moment opportunity.
Coming from Inverness, Knoxy said the 10k training gave her a great opportunity to get to know women in Glasgow. ‘This year will be my third 10k. It is good to get together before hand for training. Then crossing that finishing line on the day makes you feel great!’
