Ttr Icon Mo Farah for Great North Run

Olympic and world champion Mo Farah will race at the 2014 Great North Run half-marathon looking to go one better than last year's second-place finish.

Farah, 31, won gold in the 5,000m and 10,000m at London 2012 and Moscow 2013 but was pipped to GNR success by Ethiopia's Kenenisa Bekele.

"I would like to come back and win this year," said Farah.

The 2014 elite field for the race on 7 September includes Olympic marathon champion Stephen Kiprotich of Uganda.

Farah, who withdrew from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow after failing to recover from a recent illness, will be among 57,000 running in next month's field.

Organisers Nova have said that this year's race is set to feature the one millionth finisher of the Great North Run since the event began in 1981.

"I'm thrilled that on such a momentous milestone for the Great North Run, Britain's greatest-ever male distance runner will be joining us," chairman Brendan Foster added.

"One thing's for sure; Mo will be desperate to be first over the finish line in South Shields."
