The Worcester 10k event has now been running for three years and each year attracts thousands of spectators, visitors and runners to the city. Steve has been the lynchpin in all arrangements and has worked closely with the team at Worcestershire County Council and its partners.
Steve himself is no stranger to the limelight. Steve ' The Jarrow Arrow', named aptly after his hometown in Gateshead, was one of the world's dominant middle distance runners during the 1980s. Steve set world records in the 1500, 2000m and the mile during one summer in 1985.
The 10k event takes runners through the streets of the city taking in the sights of the new, such as The Hive and the Diglis marina to the historic charm of the Cathedral and the Shambles.
The county hosts a number of large events such as the Worcester 10k, Run, Bike Run, the Pearl Izumi Redditch Tour Series, the Worcestershire Tour Ride and the Go Dad Run charity event, in support of Prostate Cancer.
Worcestershire is growing in terms of its sporting prowess. The Worcester Arena is home to the GB Wheelchair Basketball players while Kidderminster Harriers who are currently third in the National League are based over to the north of the County in the Wyre Forest.
Following the success of the Olympics and Paralympics in Rio, the county celebrated some of its sporting champions, including: Alex Gregory (Evesham) Rebecca Redfern (Droitwich) and Lauren Rowles (Bromsgrove).
Steve is seen in each of the videos below explaining why he thinks Worcestershire is a World Class place when it comes to sporting prowess and sporting champions.
