Great Britain's double Olympic champion Mo Farah will run in the 1500m at the Birmingham Grand Prix on 7 June.
"The World Championships in Beijing is the main aim for this year. Birmingham will be good to work on my speed in a shorter early season race," said Farah.
"It will be good to step down and test myself at a shorter distance."
Farah's time of three minutes 28.81 seconds at the Monaco Diamond League event in July 2013 remains a British record and he is looking forward to the event at the Alexander Stadium.
He added: "Some of the best middle distance runners in the world will be in the field so I will have to be at my best to compete with them."
