Epic battle between Eluid Kipchoge (2:01:39) vs Kenenisa Bekele (2:01:41) Also in the men's field is Canadian Tristan Woodfine (2:13:16) who will be looking to run under the Olympic Standard of 2:11:30
On the women's side current WR holder Brigid Kosegi (2:14:04), Ruth Chepngetich (2:17:08) and Roza Dereje highlight the field.
Great to see Tristan get into this race! Mo Farah will be pacing to the 2:11:30 standard
Incredible run for Woodfine! Love to see more and more strong marathon results from Canadian runners. Unfortunately Cam seems to have blown up after a strong start, at about 35k I think it was? Hopefully he can get another opportunity in the near future for a marathon PB.
