FOR the first time since its early years, there could be a Scottish winner of the Ignis Asset Management Women's 10K.
This Sunday's event will feature no elite athletes from overseas.
Instead, race organiser Glasgow Life introduced new prizes to tempt Scottish club runners and boost home-grown talent ahead of the Olympics and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
There is a £12,000 prize fund, with £1000 each for the winner and the top team.
The first women's 10K, in 1993, was won by Glasgow-born Lynne MacDougall but athletes from overseas have dominated the event in recent years.
Last year, 10K world champion Linet Masai, of Kenya, successfully defended her Glasgow title in 32mins 11secs.
The prize structure will see the first 20 finishers collect cash awards, plus extra prizes for the Masters group and those who complete the course in under 35 minutes.
The top six Scottish Athletics Limited registered teams will split more than £3000.
Keith Russell, head of sport at Glasgow Life, said: "We listened to what last year's runners said and have made key improvements."
