NEWHAM & ESSEX BEAGLES Mo Farah is heading to the Pyrenees in preparation for the summer track season.

The 26-year-old will join six other athletes this week at the Font Romeu on the French side of the Pyrenees mountains, famous for being a training base for the UK's most successful long distance runner of the last decade, Paula Radcliffe.
