Reigning Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill makes her eagerly awaited competitive return on the streets of Manchester, following the birth of her first child last year. She will line up in the 100m hurdles, alongside fellow Brit Tiffany Porter, as the city once again plays host to the annual event on a purpose-built athletics arena.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Britain's latest heptathlon sensation, will also be in action. The 22-year-old newly crowned European Indoor pentathlon champion takes on her British team-mate Eilidh Child over the 200m hurdles. Child won European 400m hurdles gold and Commonwealth silver last season.

Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford and emerging talents Chijindu Ujah, Jodie Williams, Dina Asher-Smith and Morgan Lake are amongst the other Brits taking part.

11:00-13:00 GMT, BBC Two

Jonathan Edwards presents live coverage of Europe's biggest 10K race. Britain's Jo Pavey, twice a winner of this event, will be amongst a high-class women's field. The 41-year-old famously won a European gold medal last summer, a month after winning Commonwealth bronze. The line-up also includes reigning Olympic and World 5,000m champion Meseret Defar of Ethiopia and Kenya's marathon specialist Edna Kiplagat.

Former Olympic and world 10,000m champion Haile Gebrselassie and Ibrahim Jeilan head the Ethiopian charge in the men's race. They face competition from Kenyan trio Wilson Kipsang - a London Marathon winner - Stephen Sambu and Leonard Komon.

Now in its 13th year, the event also attracts many thousands of fun-runners raising money for various charities and good causes.

Steve Cram and Andrew Cotter provide commentary, with analysis from Paula Radcliffe and Denise Lewis.
