He’s been tearing up the track this year.
One of England’s best long-distance runners has finished six weeks of altitude training in Iten, Kenya. Mo Farah has been preparing himself to race the Bupa Great Edinburgh Cross Country event next month as well as the European Indoor Championship.
Farah notes that his training has been going as planned.
“I have enjoyed training at both Kaptagat and Iten with Moses and Denis Masai. My main focus would be in the World Indoor and World championship in Daegu, where I hope to win a medal,” he said. Farah, 27, is the British record holder in the 5,000m event.
Farah will be joining longtime training partner and friend Chris Thompson on the combined Great Britain and Northern Ireland team that is competing against the likes of the United States, Europe, and top East African squads in the men’s International Team Challenge in Scotland. The International Team Challenge is a new concept created by organizers of the Scottish race. The top six runners of a nine-man squad will be scored to determine the overall winner of the race.
