The double Olympic champion in 5000 and 10.000 meter races Mo Farah was due to compete in the second half-marathon of his career in Bupa Great North Run,  but instead he will take part in the invitational 2 miles which has been added to the Great North CityGames schedule on Saturday.

Now entering its fifth year, the Great North CityGames has become an established highlight in an action packed sporting weekend for the region.Staged the day before the Bupa Great North Run, the event is once again set to bring world class competition to the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside, with GB&NI athletes taking on their rivals from the USA.

Farah has raced just once since the Olympics, which was also over the two-mile distance at the Birmingham Diamond League meeting, where he enjoyed a comfortable victory but failed to break Steve Ovett's long-standing UK record.
