    Haile Gebrselassie is the race pacemaker for the elite runners :)

    I'm baffled as to why Mo Farah wants to run a marathon. :confused:

    I think he is/was considering moving into marathon running after London 2012 - commentators just remarked that they would prefer him to stay at 10,000 meters for Rio 2016. Record breaking win for Wilson Kipsang :)

    Well, Mo didn't beat the GB record but did finish inside the English record. Not bad at all for a first time marathon :)


    :lol: He wants to run more marathons as he's disappointed with his performance here.

    Hope this doesn't knock his confidence. Great time for a first marathon, but he didn't look very satisfied.
