Mo Farah will step up his London Marathon preparations by defending his title at the Vitality Big Half in the capital on March 10.
Farah won last year in 61 minutes and 40 secs before going on to break the British marathon record in London the following month.
The 35-year-old said: ‘I’m really looking forward to returning this year. The crowds were amazing last time.

‘I’m feeling stronger than ever and this race is all part of my preparation for the big one in April.’
Farah is yet to make a decision on whether he will run the marathon or the 10,000m at the World Championships in Doha this autumn.
His marathon credentials were established with his impressive win in Chicago at the distance last October, but he has previously admitted an urge to return to the 10,000m, where he would still be a favourite for gold.
