Eliud Kipchoge leads star-studded field at Boston Marathon

BERLIN, Germany – A record 47,912 runners from 156 nations have registered for the 49th BMW Berlin Marathon, set for this Sunday (24 Sept).

This highly-anticipated road race serves as the inaugural fall Abbott World Marathon Majors event and holds a Platinum Label from World Athletics.

Eliud Kipchoge, considered the greatest marathon runner of all time, lowered his own world record to 2:01:09 in Berlin last year. This year, he faces stiff competition from 12 men with personal bests under 2:06, notably fellow Kenyan Amos Kipruto.

Top European entrants, Germany’s Amanal Petros and Switzerland’s Tadesse Abraham, are expected to challenge their national records.

On the women’s side, the event features the fastest elite field in its history. Defending champion and course record holder Tigist Assefa tops the list, joined by Sheila Chepkirui, Tigist Abayechew, and Workenesh Edesa, all of whom have personal bests under 2:19.
