Women: run with Paula!

Legendary athlete Paula Radcliffe has launched a search for six London women 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, 19th 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. Paula explained: “I want to find six women who might think that running isn’t for them to join me. Perhaps you’re a mum who hasn’t run since your school days. Maybe you’re a ‘super gran’ who can still show the younger ones a thing or two. Perhaps you’re simply carrying a few pounds and you want to get back in shape. Running is great fun, especially when you do it as a group – so come on, ladies, let’s show the rest of the country what you can do!”

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 sixfornewham@greatrun.org by midday on Friday 24th April.
