RUNNERS will be looking to break personal bests and long-held course records when they line-up at this year’s Worcester Pitchcroft 10-kilometre race on Sunday.

It will be the 24th running of the event which begins at 11am from Worcester Racecourse.

The course is over three, traffic-free laps around the tarmacadam perimeter tracks and paths offers potential personal best times for runners with the finish on the grandstand concourse
