LONDON (Reuters) - Paula Radcliffe will race in the world half-marathon championships on October 11 after being named in the British team for the Birmingham event, UK Athletics said on their website (www.uka.org.uk) on Tuesday.

Radcliffe, world-record holder over the full marathon and third-fastest ever over the half marathon, won the New York half-marathon on August 16 but withdrew from the marathon at the Berlin world championships the following week saying she was not fully fit following a foot operation earlier this year.

Radcliffe, 35, won the half-marathon world title in 2000, 2001 and 2003.
