Tennis legend Serena Williams is getting excited about next month’s inaugural Serena Williams Ultimate Run in South Beach, Florida.
World number one Serena is expected to race, alongside on-court rival and best friend Caroline Wozniacki.
Andy Murray and Serena’s sister, Venus, are also likely to attend the event, which will include a quarter marathon, a 5k run/walk and the ‘Ultimate Kids Dash’.

Proceeds from the event will support the Serena Williams Fund, which finances two schools in Kenya and provides assistance to families affected by violent crimes.
Serena was inspired to create her own charity race after running 5k in South Beach last November.
She said: “Every year, I do a run for Thanksgiving, the 5k or 10;, to kick-start my training for the year, and last year after running the 5K, I thought, ‘Wow, I really should do my charity based on running because it’s a really fun way to promote a healthy lifestyle.
“People love it. You can run, walk, bring your family, it’s early in the morning. I love karaoke, so at my race, afterward you can go on the beach, relax, have Gatorade and sing karaoke.”
