Double Olympic and world champion in 5000m, Mo Farah, will be looking to take victory at Sunday's Great North Run (IAAF Golden Label Road Race) half marathon in Newcastle.
Last year at the Great North Run Farah faced a defeat by legendary Kenenisa Bekele, but this year the 31 year old Briton is fully motivated to come back and win world's largest half marathon race hosting more than 57,000 runners.
“I like running the half marathon,” said Farah. “My first was in New York in 2011, which I won. I enjoyed making my debut in the Bupa Great North Run last year. It was a great race, between Kenenisa, Haile Gebrselassie and myself, but I just didn’t have quite enough.
“This time I want to win it. The Bupa Great North Run is a big race and it would be nice to have a win in it. It will be my last race before I start getting ready for next year.”
