Former international athlete, world record holder and Olympic medallist Steve Cram came to Worcester yesterday to launch a series of exciting running and cycling events set to take place in the city.

He was joined by 15-year-old Nixie Turner, an outstanding local triathlete who won the Worcester ‘Race for Life’ in 2013, and other members of the Worcester Triathlon Club. 

Worcester City Council is one of the founding sponsors for the new Worcester City 10k, Worcester City Run Bike Run and Worcester City Young Athletes Run, which will take place at Pitchcroft Race Course on 21 September 2014, and also on dates to be confirmed in 2015 and 2016.

The future aim for the “First Class City Series” running event is that it becomes a permanent annual feature in the running calendar, and longer term funding is found to secure the event beyond 2016.

Steve Cram says:  “The Events from the North team are really excited to be delivering a new event here in the City of Worcester.  We’re passionate about bringing First Class running and cycling races to first class cities. 

“With such a stunning backdrop to work with, we’ve been able to provide a fast, spectator friendly, fun course for both runners and cyclists.  Who knows, if I’m feeling fit come September, I may be entering the 10K myself!”

“These unique new events will put Worcester on the national sporting map, helping to build its profile and attracting a greater number of visitors to our great city,” says Cllr Adrian Gregson, Leader of Worcester City Council.  “We hope that many local people, as well as others from much further afield, will be inspired to get training and be among the first to enter for 2014.”

Entries for the Worcester City 10K and bike run are now open at worcestercityrun.com
