Mo down to MINUS 6.1 after Rock and Roll Half

Five minutes with Mo

Double Olympic Champion, Mo Farah has reduced his runbritain handicap score to MINUS 6.1 after winning the New Orleans Rock and Roll Marathon at the weekend taking .5 from his previous score of MINUS 5.6 that stood after the British Athletics Grand Prix the previous weekend. See his profile page here.

Mo's time of 60:59 for the half marathon is a new British record as well as a new course record. It also keeps him at the top of the national runbritain ladder

This new record is actually 36 seconds slower than the time he ran at the New York City Half Marathon two years ago but, as that was on a 'downhill course' it didn't count as a British Record.
