Some of those who have entered this Sunday's Ignis Asset Management Women's 10K had a trial run before enjoying an annual Pasta Party.
The fun event began with a two-mile run round the city centre, leaving from Di Maggio's in Royal Exchange Square.
Participants made their way down Buchanan Street then crossed a Clyde bridge before heading back to the city centre via the Merchant City.
Then it was a final lap up West Nile Street to the finish line outside Di Maggio's Theatreland in West Nile Street.
All runners were invited into the restaurant for a well-deserved bowl of pasta and a pudding.
There were also free massages, entertainment and prizes, including memberships to the Glasgow Running Network.
Another Pasta Party is planned before the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run in September.
Louise Morgan, of Glasgow Running Network, said: "The Pasta Party Fun Run is a great way to celebrate the hard work everyone has put in over the previous weeks preparing for the races.
"It is also a great opportunity to meet other runners and ask any last-minute questions about the big day.
"It is very much a fun, social night out that helps everyone relax and look forward to the race together."
Thousands of women are expected to take part in this Sunday's 10K race at Bellahouston Park, of which the Evening Times is the media partner.
This year, race organiser Glasgow Life has made some improvements to the event, including the chance to upgrade to a technical T-shirt and entertainment at every 500 metres rather than at the kilometre marks.
There will also be more start pulses, in the hope of reducing congestion at the start line and pacemakers to help women run to a target time if they hope for a personal best.
All runners in the event will receive free vouchers for use on Glasgow's Subway system and for free parking at selected Subway stations.
