THE competition to take part in one of Worcester's biggest events of the year is now closed, and ten lucky winners will be taking part.

Karen Cooper, St John’s, Worcester, Ian Wild,Carys Coleman, Worcester, Norman Rogers,Kofil Ahmed, Worcester, Angela Derbyshire, Becky Jones, Worcester, Rob Plumpton, Worcester, John Cocker,Droitwich Spa and Katherine Burrows of Worcester will all be taking part in this year's Worcester City 10K race.

They all answered the question "Which world-record holding athlete is set to take part in the Worcester City 10K race?"

The answer was of course Paula Radcliffe.

Each winner has won a ticket to take part in the race, worth £25.

Hundreds are expected to compete in the 10K race, but runners who fancy more of a challenge can test their metal in the Worcester City Run Bike Run event, a 50K race incorporating a 10K race, a 35K bike ride, and a further 5K race to finish.

There are events for all ages too, with a one-mile run for those under the age of 11 years-old and a 3K race for budding athletes aged between 11 and 15 years-old.

It is set to go ahead on Sunday, September 21.
