• Farah to Run Great North Half Marathon
Double Olympic champion, Mo Farah, will race at the Great North Run on 7 September.
Farah, who will try to defend his European crowns in the 5000m and in the 10000m at European track and Field championships next week, will face reigning world and Olympic marathon champion Stephen Kiprotich.
“I’m looking forward to returning to the north-east to run my second Bupa Great North Run. I have been part of the weekend several times in the past, taking part in the mile and two miles races at the Great North CityGames on the Quayside."
