Ennis-Hill set a British record of 12.54 seconds for the 100m hurdles at London 2012, although that has since been broken by Tiffany Porter.

I'm really looking forward to making my competitive return at the Great CityGames Manchester. The atmosphere is always amazing there.

Street athletics is a lot of fun, not only you are really close to the fans, but the energy around the Morrison's Great Manchester Run weekend is fantastic, as the elite races and the mass participation run bring the city together in a celebration of running.
