    Mainova Frankfurt Marathon on Sunday: Frankfurt aims for new Heights with Strength in Depth

    (photo - Kelkile Gezahegn, Arne Gabius and Wilson Chebet as well as Christoph Kopp, Nancy Kiprop, Katharina Heinig, Mare Dibaba, Betsy Saina, Haftamnesh Tesfay and Jo Schindler) Frankfurt this year especially is rich in running talent with 14 men who have broken 2:10 and ten women with personal bests of sub-2:25, making the latter field among the strongest in the event’s 37-year history. Top of the women’s marathon charts on lifetime performances is the former World champion Mare Dibaba from Ethiopia, the first woman on the start line with a sub-2:20 to her credit, plus this year’s Paris champion Betsy Saina of Kenya among a group of women who should have the credentials to put the course record of 2:21:01 under pressure.

  • BMW BERLIN-MARATHON: Eliud Kipchoge smashes World Record, Gladys Cherono sets Course Record and world lead
    BMW BERLIN-MARATHON: Eliud Kipchoge smashes World Record, Gladys Cherono sets Course Record and world lead

    Eliud Kipchoge crowned the 45th edition of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON with a fantastic world record in 2:01:39. The 33-year-old Kenyan led from the start, following his own schedule and was never challenged for the lead. When he crossed the finish line he had obliterated the world record of 2:02:57, set by his compatriot Dennis Kimetto four years ago in Berlin, taking the huge margin of one minute, 18 seconds off that time. It is the biggest advance in the men’s marathon world record for over 50 years since the Australian Derek Clayton ran 2:09:36 in Fukuoka in 1967, slicing two-and-a-half minutes from the record. It is also the eleventh world record in the history of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON.
