Steve Cram Travels First Class To Worcester

Steve Cram in Worcester running to promote new event

Steve Cram was in Worcester this week to launch an exciting new event in the city. The world record holder and popular broadcaster was joined by 15-year-old Nixie Turner, an outstanding local triathlete who won the Worcester ‘Race for Life’ in 2013, to announce an exciting event programme of running and cycling races.

The 'First Class City Series' is an innovative combination of running and cycling events comprising
the new Worcester City 10k, Worcester City Run Bike Run and Worcester City Young Athletes Run.  The events will take place at Pitchcroft Race Course on 21 September 2014.

Steve Cram said:  “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!”

Entries for the Worcester City 10K and bike run are now open at the event website.
