Mo Farah set for penultimate race

4 June, 2023

Mo Farah will take to the start line at the Great Manchester 10k on Sunday for the penultimate race of his career before his retirement in September.

Farah, 40, announced this year’s Great North Run will be his final competitive race after he finished ninth in April’s London Marathon.

It will be the first time since 2018 that four-time Olympic champion Farah has raced the Manchester event.

On that occasion, he triumphed in a sprint finish against Moses Kipsiro.

“There is something incredibly special about racing in Manchester, the support from the city for me has always been phenomenal,” Farah said.(BBC sport)
