Paul said: "It is great to be able to launch the Jane Tomlinson Hull 10K.
"Jane was a real hero to lots of people and I'm sure she has inspired many to take up a personal challenge of their own.
"The Hull 10K is a great way to start and will raise lots of money for some really deserving causes."
About 5,000 runners are expected to take part in the race, which will start and finish in Alfred Gelder Street.
The course will take participants along the Humber Estuary and past some of the city's best-known landmarks including Hull Marina and The Deep.
As well as raising funds for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, the Hull event will bring in income for charities including The Echoes Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support, Candlelighters, Yorkshire Cancer Research, Her Breast Friends and Hull Children's University.
The event is supported by Hull City Council, which helps with organisation such as road closures.
Councillor Terry Geraghty, portfolio holder for leisure and culture, said: "The 10K returning to Hull is a fantastic opportunity for the city.
"It is important to remember that the Olympics may have been last year but that enthusiasm for sport and fitness is still going strong.
"We want people to sign up and show the region what Hull is made of.
"The 10K is one of a long list of sporting events taking place in the city this year."
Proceeds from Run For All events go to the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, the legacy of the fundraiser and campaigner who raised thousands for charity before she died of cancer, aged 43.
