Parallel London: the new race looking for competitors of all abilities

Following the huge success of the London 2012 Paralympics, a new run has been launched hoping to attract competitors of all ages and abilities.

Parallel London describes itself as "the world's first fully accessible and inclusive large scale mass participation run" and takes place in the Olympic Park in east London.

The course is 5km, but those taking part can do shorter distances depending on their ability. London Live went to the event's launch at the London Aquatic Centre, where we spoke to founder Andrew Douglass, disabled model Kelly Knox and Zishan Kinoo, who will be taking part in the race.
