On January 10, at the Great Edinburgh Cross Country race, Nike Oregon Project's Mo Farah makes his return to competition. We missed seeing Farah race this year, as he only raced a handful of times (including at the Portland Track Festival). While he isn't known as a legendary cross country runner, he should stack up well against the competition.

Here's the latest from Farah in a recent IAAF article:

“Next year will be an important year for me and I’m looking forward to returning to the Great Edinburgh Cross Country to kick off my season,” said Farah. “For many years I ran cross country to build my base for the summer track season and it will be nice to return to Edinburgh and try to repeat my winning run of 2011 there.”
