On the track, he generally competes over 5000 m and 10,000 m, but also runs the 3000 metres and occasionally the 1500 metres. He made his marathon debut in 2014 in London, placing eighth, and setting a new English record of 2 hours, 8 minutes, 21 seconds.

Farah was also appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to athletics.
