Mo Farah wins for record fourth straight year

Monday, 11 September 2017 :  Britain’s Mo Farah claimed a record fourth successive victory in the 37th Great North Run.

The 34-year-old overcame New Zealand’s Jake Robertson in a thrilling duel to win in one hour six seconds.

London Marathon winner Mary Keitany of Kenya surged to her third victory in the women’s race in 1:05:59.

Three-time runner-up Simon Lawson won the men’s wheelchair race and Manuela Schar broke the course record by over a minute in the women’s wheelchair event.

Farah equals the number of victories in the race by Kenyan Benson Masya, who won in 1991, 1992, 1994 and 1996.

The four-time Olympic gold medallist, who ended his track career with victory in the 5,000m in Zurich last month, timed his push for the line to perfection to pass Robertson and finish six seconds clear.
