Radcliffe celebrates her victory in the New York half marathon
Britain's Paula Radcliffe will race in the New York City Marathon in November.
The 35-year-old world marathon record holder has competed once in 10 months - in the New York half marathon - because of bunion surgery and a broken toe.
She withdrew from the Athletics World Championships in Berlin in August four days after her victory in New York.
Radcliffe, who is due to return to action in Birmingham on 11 October, will be seeking her fourth New York Marathon win and third in succession.
"I think the motivating thing here is that no one since Grete Waitz has been in a position to go for four victories here," race director Mary Wittenburg told the New York Times.
Norwegian Waitz won nine New York City Marathons between 1978 and 1988.
"It is very difficult to dominate an event, or even win more than one especially one as competitive as this one, let alone four times," added Wittenberg.
"I think Paula is the ultimate competitor. She rises to the major challenges. She's not going to waste an effort. The trophy has to make the quest worthwhile."
Her comeback in the World Half Marathon in Birmingham marks the start of a mission that she hopes will culminate with the 2012 Olympics in London.
"I am really excited to be returning to New York this year," the world record holder said in a statement issued by the organisers.
"The foot's feeling good. It's really settled down a lot, I can actually almost forget about it."
