Seven month pregnant Radcliffe to run for charity

Posted By: Staff

London, Jun 16 (ANI): Marathon world-record holder Paula Radcliffe will be running for charity despite being seven months pregnant.

Radcliffe, 36, is to run in the Leeds 10K race on July 4, which raises funds for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal cancer charity.

She said she is looking forward to coming to Leeds to run the race for the first time in July.

Radcliffe will only jog as her second child is due in September and is honoured to run in an event founded by Tomlinson, who lost her own battle against cancer in 2007, The Sun reports.

Radcliffe said: "Jane was such an inspiration to me. I was in awe of her. She was a great friend who raised a remarkable amount of money."

"The money Jane raised in her life and the money Mike and his team have raised since is remarkable," she added. (ANI)
