Mo Farah

What St Mary's means to Britain's most successful track athlete.

Endurance Performance and Coaching Centre (EPACC)

Sir Mo Farah trained at St Mary’s from 2001-2011, where he was awarded a scholarship to the Endurance Performance and Coaching Centre (EPACC). He was the first EPACC athlete and has since gone on to be the most successful alumnus of the Centre.

Mo continued to train regularly here at St Mary's until he moved to Oregon, USA. He has since gone on to become the most successful British track athlete in modern Olympic Games history, with four gold medals.

In February 2017 the track Mo trained on was named in his honour and he returned to the campus to celebrate the Sir Mo Farah Athletics Track. In December 2017 Mo celebrated winning the annual BBC Sports Personality of the Year award from a live feed hosted at the University.
