Glaswegians to get INSTA-appeal

Friday, 25 May 2018

Glasgow women are being urged to get some INSTA-appeal this bank holiday weekend.

Organisers of this year’s Simplyhealth Great Women’s Run have installed a series of Instagram style photo-frames in the city’s Kelvingrove Park.

Ahead of the hottest weekend of the year they are offering five lucky women the chance to win free entry to the iconic 10k event on Sunday 10 June.

People just need to take a snap of themselves in the frame, tag @great_run and #GreatWomensRun – organisers will chose five winners.

Alex Jackson, Event Director: “The bank holiday weekend is set to be a scorcher. We are calling on women to sizzle with Insta-appeal and take on the Simplyhealth Great Women’s Run, when they can join thousands of others, some of whom are raising money for a whole host of fantastic causes.”

The Simplyhealth Great Women’s Run 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.

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