Ethiopia's Haile Gebrselassie has confirmed his bid to race at the second BUPA Great Manchester Run title on 17 May.

The BUPA Great Manchester Run, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, is one of the world's leading 10 kilometres road races which attracts 33,000 entrants last year.

Gebrselassie, 35, who ran the fastest time ever on British roads (27:25) on his Manchester debut in 2005 is arguably the world's greatest-ever distance runner having set a remarkable total of 26 World records/bests in his career.
