RADIO stars Cassi and Amber are getting in the groove to join thousands of women preparing to take on this year’s Simplyhealth Great Women’s Run.

The Clyde 1 hosts headed to Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow – where the iconic event finishes – as they called on others to hit play and enter the 10k run on Sunday 10 June.

The event goes through the city’s west end and along the quayside taking in some of the city's most iconic buildings including Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow University, Glasgow Science Centre and the SSE Hydro to name just a few, before finishing in Kelvingrove Park.

Local 'Bands on the Run' and Scottish Pipers will be also be on hand to help motivate runners all the way to the finish line.

Cassi Gillespie – who presents traffic and travel on the Bowie at Breakfast show – is supporting Cash For Kids. She said:  “With just over three weeks to go we both can’t wait to get to the starting line of the Simplyhealth Great Women’s Run.

“It is such a fantastic and well supported event and is a real privilege to be running alongside other women, many of whom are raising money for fantastic causes. Working in radio we’re obviously looking forward to catching some of the great bands lining the route.”

Amber Livingstone – who presents the home run travel – added: “We’ve been training together to push each other on, there is always more motivation if you are doing it with someone. We say we’re not competitive but I reckon a bit is probably creeping in now.”

Finishers will receive a special goody bag including a medal, technical T-shirt, water and lots of other rewards.
