In a very short press release from UKA it has been announced that Neil Black will leave his role at the end of the month.

The entire statement was only four lines and is included in it’s entirety below. The British public can rest assured that Black will still be on hand to support Sir Mo Farah at the Chicago Marathon this weekend. Maybe just to look into Sir Mo’s eyes again…
