Double Olympic champion Mo Farah celebrated his "perfect summer of sport" by winning the two-mile race at the Great North CityGames in Newcastle.
Farah's stunning victories in the 10,000m and 5,000m at London 2012 ended Great Britain's long wait for a men's long distance gold medal and, in the process, established the Somalia-born athlete as a household name.
Britain's Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford, who won his gold medal on 'Super Saturday' - when Farah triumphed in the 10,000m and Jess Ennis claimed her heptathlon crown - took on American Olympic triple jump champion Christian Taylor in the CityGames long jump event.
Tomlinson, from Middlesbrough, finished sixth in the Olympic final on August 4.
Farah, 29, has seen his life change immeasurably during the last few weeks. Not only is he adjusting to his new-found fame, he is also adjusting the birth of his twin daughters, Aisha and Amani.
"When I'm training, I go up in the mountains and switch off while I run. I work really hard, but having twins is equally as tough.
"I have two beautiful little girls and I'm seeing them grow up every week. It's going to be so much fun watching them grow up until they get to the point where I have to say, 'No, you're not doing this or that'. You can't compare the two sides of my life.
"It's completely different, but I'm enjoying it. It's great. All that goes on in my athletics career must come to an end at some point, but my family life will go on and the kids will be there. That's really important to me."
