Mo Farah’s final Big Half race is in London in 2023; these are the times the BBC will be covering it

On Sunday, Mo Farah will compete in his final race in his hometown of London in The Big Half.

After the Great North Run on September 10, Farah will retire from competitive running. He has won four Olympic gold medals and six world titles.

The 40-year-old Brit has won the Big Half three times, but he hasn’t raced seriously since placing seventh at the London Marathon in April.

From 8:10 AM BST, BBC iPlayer and online will begin streaming live coverage of the Big Half.

According to Farah, “The Big Half” will be his “final ever London race.”

“It’s always such a great day and I know the London crowds will be cheering me on, as they always have. But it’s bittersweet knowing that this will be the last time I race competitively in my home town.”

On October 1, British competitors will compete in a half-marathon to determine who would represent their country at the World Athletics Road Running Championships in Estonia.

The top two domestic male runners are Jonny Mellor and Andy Butchart, while the top two female runners are Samantha Harrison and Calli Thackery.

David Weir is the top seed in the men’s wheelchair race, while defending winner Eden Rainbow-Cooper meets up against former world 100m champion Samantha Kinghorn in the women’s wheelchair race.

Over 15,000 people are expected to follow Farah from the area of Tower Bridge to the ancient Cutty Sark ship in Greenwich.
