A Worcestershire IT specialist is set to take part in this month’s Worcester 10k to raise money for the Cancer Research charity.
Paul Taylor, head of sales at Kidderminster IT firm Minster Micro, is taking part in the city’s popular race after running the half marathon event over the past two years. He is aiming to raise over £1,000 for the world’s largest independent cancer research organisation.
Paul said: “The Worcester 10k is always a fantastic race to take part in but more importantly, it is an opportunity to raise money for such a great cause.
“Cancer Research is close to my heart as I sadly lost my mum to the illness in 1998, but also had friends who have been affected by the disease. If I can reach my £1,000 target for this year I will be delighted as it will help the charity continue their superb work.
“In terms of the race itself, last year I ran well in the half marathon but I want to test myself in the shorter 10k and I’m aiming for a finish time of around 45 minutes. That has meant a tough training programme but the event is only days away now and I am looking forward to it.”
The Worcester 10k is part of the 2023 Worcester City Runs Weekend which is being held between 16th and 17th September. It’s the city’s ninth 10k race and also sees the half marathon taking place on the same weekend. Over 4,000 runners are set to take part.
