Mo Farah is to defend his Great North Run title in September - and bid for his third consecutive title.

Farah will return to the North East of England on 11 September for the world’s biggest half marathon - and this time is wife will be taking on the GNR challenge too for the very first time.

Having finished runner up to Ethiopian superstar Kenenisa Bekele in 2013, Farah claimed the Great North Run crown in 2014 before retaining it a year later with a British and European record time of 59.22.

“I love the Great North Run and the incredible atmosphere at the event. The noise from the crowd in those last few hundred metres is just unbelievable!” “It’s a big year for me, but once it’s over it will be great to end my season at one of my favourite events, with Tania taking part as a fun runner too.”
