Legendary athlete Paula Radcliffe has launched a search for six women from the Greater London area who want to get active and inspire others, by taking up the challenge of entering the Morrisons Great Newham London Run for the first time.
The six women will form a special group called 'Radcliffe's Great Runners' and receive training advice from the marathon world record holder herself.
The Morrisons Great Newham London Run is due to be staged over 10K on Sunday 19 July and will be the first event to take place in the former Olympic Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, since the transformation work began.
Runners will have an amazing opportunity to run in the Stadium and cross the same finish line that Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis crossed to win gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games. What more inspiration could there be?
The Morrisons Great Newham London Run is aiming to become the biggest running event in Britain with 60,000 people taking part within five years and Paula wants to see more women in the event.
Paula is passionate about getting more women running and even if you’re not one of Radcliffe’s Great Runners you can still take part, get fit and have fun. There’ll be plenty of training tips on the greatrun.org website and 10k is a really manageable distance, even if you haven’t run before.
Great Run, The World's Favourite Run series with 17 runs in the UK and abroad, has appointed Paula Radcliffe as its Ambassador for women's running.
If you think you've got what it takes to be one of ‘Radcliffe's Great Runners' email your details with a maximum 100-word summary to firstname.lastname@example.org by midday on Friday 24 April 2015.
