BBC will be showing Sir Mo Farrah's last run live this weekend.

The four-times Olympic champion will bring his glittering career to an end at the Great North Run. He announced his plans to retire earlier in 2023.

The Beeb cover the event live once again in 2023. More than 60,000 runners will descend on Newcastle for the world’s largest half-marathon.

Thousands will also take to the streets to cheer on the runners - but if you are unable to make it to the north east this weekend, you might be wondering if you can watch along at home. The BBC has confirmed its plans for the 2023 Great North Run.
