Radcliffe to run in New York
Wednesday 12 May 2010
Paula Radcliffe will be back in action next month in New York, but as a fun runner, not a racer.
Britain's Radcliffe, 36, is due to give birth to her second child in late September and while she will not compete professionally until after her pregnancy, she will appear on 12 June at the 39th NYRR New York Mini 10K, organisers New York Road Runners said yesterday.
Radcliffe, a three-time winner of the New York City Marathon, and fellow mother-to-be Kara Goucher of the United States, will be special guests at the women-only road race in Central Park, which the British runner won in 2001.
"They intend to run, not race," a New York Road Runners spokesperson said.
Both women are due to give birth on the same date. Radcliffe and her husband, Gary Lough, are already the parents of three-year-old daughter, Isla. Goucher, 32, and her husband, Olympian Adam Goucher, are expecting their first child.
