Big event in Birmingham in January features a number of well-known figures from the sport

Mo Farah will join Colin Jackson, Dame Kelly Holmes, David Weir, Jamie Baulch and Richard Whitehead at the National Running Show at the NEC in Birmingham on January 20-21.

Farah won 10 global championship gold medals (four Olympic and six world titles) during his career but retired from elite athletics earlier this year.

He said: “I’m happy to be speaking at the National Running Show in January. I look forward to talking to runners at a show created for runners. Running is a sport that no matter what or where you come form, if you work hard at it you can achieve something.”
