Over 5,000 runners of all ages and abilities are preparing to take part in the Worcester City Run on 15 September.

There are several route options for participants to choose from, pending on their capabilities.

The popular half marathon starts and finishes in Castle Street, with the 10k run doing the same route but avoiding Hylton Road and the University campus.

All runners will receive a t-shirt, medal and goody bag for taking part.

A number of free ‘Start Me Up’ training sessions are being held on part of the route with the next one taking place on 7 September.
