RUNNERS from Yorkshire and Lancashire will battle it out at the annual War of the Roses challenge, as the Bupa Great Yorkshire Run returns to Sheffield in 2013.

The city centre 10k, now in its seventh year, takes place on September 29. The battle commences when participants pledge their allegiance to either Yorkshire or Lancashire, with both counties led by celebrity captains. The county that completes the course in the fastest average time wins the trophy.
