Farah, who is the most successful British track athlete in Olympic Games history having successfully defended both his 5000m and 10,000m gold medal-winning titles in Rio last summer, joined up with the running club on Tuesday evening.
Along with wife Tania, also an avid runner, the couple joined the regular running group – and Mo’s arrival of course stirred up plenty of excitement!
The 33-year-old is holidaying with his family in the UAE but on this evidence is still training – as he gears up for his swansong at the 2017 World Championships in London in August.
Absolute Pleasure to have the Farah's @ #NRC tonight was an honour to meet you both 🙌🏻 well done @taniafarah86 for smashing through our #speedrun session💪🏽 & @gomofarah a very inspirational man to me personally over the years, thanks for getting in touch!

Never before have two incredible individuals embodied and lived the virtues of strength, courage and graft to succeed. Mo & Tania you set the bar for all of us. Tonight on your vacation in Dubai, you took the time to come and run with #NRCDubai. Not for photo shoots, sponsors or publicity but for the love of your sport and the running community. You will have transformed lives tonight, and for that I thank and salute you. Your legacy in Dubai will live long after you leave. I'm just super sorry to have missed you. Till next time. Peace, love and bucketloads of respect. Coach Tom.
