Farah To Defend Great North Run Title

mo-aw[1]

Mo Farah will try to become only the third athlete to defend the GNR title, after Mike McLeod and Benson Masya. 1984 Los Angeles Olympic 10000 metres silver-medallist, McLeod, is the only British athlete to win two titles. McLeod won the inaugural race in 1981 and the following year. Farah broke the British and European record with 59:32 in Lisbon. He will be defending both the 5000 and 10000 metres titles at the World Championships. Farah is one of eight British athletes who have decided to publish their blood tests to prove they are clean athletes.
