The men’s elite competition promises an exciting showdown, featuring last year’s champion, Gebretsadik Adhana, with a personal best of 2 hours, 6 minutes, and 8 seconds.

He will face fierce competition from Ashenafi Moges of Ethiopia (2:06:12), Mouhcine Outalha, the victor of the Doha Marathon from Morocco (2:06:49), Henok Tesfay of Eritrea (2:07:12), and Kenyan debutant Edmond Kipngetich, who boasts an impressive half marathon PB of 59 minutes and 25 seconds.

The Ljubljana Marathon women’s race is equally compelling, with high expectations pinned on Ethiopian runners Gebeyanesh Ayele (2:21:22) and Sentayehu Lewetegn (2:22:36), along with Kenya’s Valentine Mateiko (2:25:05).
