RUN WITH OLYMPIAN JO PAVEY MBE AT THE WINDSOR WOMENS 10K
Windsor Women’s 10k, Saturday 29 September 2018
The exciting news has been announced that British long-distance runner, Jo Pavey MBE, a five-time Olympian, will be not only starting the race, but running as well.
Once runners have crossed the finish line, Jo will be presenting the awards and chatting with the runners and spectators in the Running4Women marquee.
Jo Pavey comments: “I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Windsor Women’s 10k, it’s so enjoyable to run in the great outdoors, and there’s not many locations that could beat running through the beautiful scenery of the Windsor Great Park. “
“It’s important to me to support women’s running as much as possible. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner or an elite athlete chasing a new PB – this 10k is more than a race, it’s a community. I’ll be running to enjoy myself and support others around the course.”
Starting the race, Jo will send all runners on their way across the start line before joining the race herself. She will support and chat her way around the course with the other participants and then present the race awards and be free for meet and great opportunities within the Running4Women tent in the race village afterwards.
Peter Hier, Race Director, adds: “Jo is such an incredible athlete and we’re extremely excited to welcome her to the race this year. Jo will be turning 45 in September, but she is still competing at an international level, pushing herself to be the best elite athlete she can be whilst also balancing a busy family life. She’s an inspiration to us all!”
