Radcliffe to race in London
Paula Radcliffe
Radcliffe is hoping for strong support from Londoners
Paula Radcliffe will make her first appearance in a competitive race since her Olympic nightmare when she competes in Run London 2004 on 28 November.

Radcliffe, who failed to finish both the marathon and the 10,000m in Athens, will be making her fourth appearance in the 10km event and holds the record.

She said: "After Athens it will be a real joy to come back to the capital and run again for the first time.

"I have received amazing support there and am really looking forward to it."

The event, to be run in the evening darkness, attracts around 30,000 runners and will take in some of the capital's most famous landmarks.

Radcliffe, who won last year's race in Richmond Park in a time of 30 minutes 50 seconds, added: "It's great to have the opportunity to run in London again, especially as it is at night.

"The course is going to look spectacular with all the London landmarks that we'll be passing, Tower Bridge in particular."
