Watch: 6,000 runners light up the streets of the West End in the Great Women’s 10k.
It was a return to the West End for the event which has been staged in the Southside in recent years.
And the new course did not disappoint as competitors passed familiar landmarks along the way, including the University of Glasgow, the Riverside Museum and the Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum.
Competitors enjoyed pre-run warm ups to music and entertainment with several musical waves set out for runners to enjoy the songs of their choice.
Singing, dancing, fancy dress and lots of selfie-taking were the order of the day as the clock ticked down to the start.
Runners got under way just after 10.30am, with competitors leaving in waves based on ability and times.
The course headed along Gibson Street and Woodlands Road. It turned into Kelvingrove Park and then on to the Riverside.
The last kilometres were through the busy streets of Finnieston and the lanes of Kelvingrove before entering the finishing line at the main gates to the park.
