BBC Sport will bring you coverage of the Great Manchester Run on Sunday, 20 May, as British marathon record holder Mo Farah takes on a strong field in Europe’s biggest 10k.

Farah’s greatest threat is Kenya’s 2017 world marathon champion Geoffrey Kirui, while the African nation are also well represented in the women’s race with 10k and half marathon world record holder Joyciline Jepkosgei taking on 2015 champion Betsy Saina.

Two days earlier there will be live coverage of the Great CityGames Manchester, with world-class athletes running on a specially laid track on Deansgate in the heart of the city and competing at a temporary athletics arena in nearby Albert Square.

Six-time Olympic champion Allyson Felix faces world silver medallist Marie-Josee Ta Lou over 150m, while Great Britain’s world indoor hurdles champion Andrew Pozzi takes on 2012 Olympic gold medallist Aries Merritt.

In addition, there will be online live streaming of the Night of the 10,000m PB’s at the Parliament Hill track on Hampstead Heath, London on Saturday evening.

The event incorporates the 10,000m European Cup and acts as the British trials for the European Athletics Championships in Berlin in August.

Britain’s Andy Vernon returns to defend his title, while Charlotte Arter and Jenny Nesbitt are the leading British women athletes in action.
