Double Olympic champion looks ahead to Sunday when he will run the NYC Half Marathon as preparation ahead of his marathon debut in April

“This is the year… I want to test myself to see if I’m good at the marathon or not.”

Mo Farah runs the NYC Half on Sunday as he builds up to making his debut over 26.2 miles at the Virgin Money London Marathon on April 13. He has said that rather than fast times it’s race practice he’s looking for in New York.
