A super fast and exciting men’s race is in prospect at the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON on Sunday. In Year One of Marathon history after Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya’s fabulous world record of 2:01:39 here in 2018, an attack on the world record has not been a subject for discussion.

Gladys Cherono is keen to write another chapter of history on Sunday in Germany’s biggest and most spectacular Road Race. A year ago the Kenyan broke the course record in the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON which had stood for 13 years and a fourth triumph here would give her more wins than any other female runner. Cherono has a further goal in breaking her course record of 2:18:11 hours. While the elite are aiming to produce world class times of under 2:20, Melat Kejeta is hoping to run 2:22 which would be a sensational debut at the distance for the former Ethiopian who received German citizenship only in March. The Olympic qualifying time for the women’s marathon in next year’s Games in Tokyo is 2:29:30, a target also shared by the home favourite Anna Hahner.

The development of the “Athens Marathon. The Authentic“ appears unstoppable. The birthplace of the marathon is also increasingly at the heart of contemporary running. Over 2,500 years after the Battle of Marathon in 490 BCE and almost 125 years since the first Olympic Marathon at the start of the modern Olympic era in Athens in 1896, the Athens Marathon.

How to watch the 2019 IAAF World Championships

INDIANAPOLIS -- In partnership with NBC Sports Group, the 2019 IAAF World Championships will be broadcast and streamed with more than 60 hours of competition coverage from Doha, Qatar available in the U.S. on NBC, NBCSN and Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA.

headline comprehensive Track & Field programming across NBC Sports this week.

The man who last year set the first world record in the history of the oldest German city marathon will be making a return to those same familiar roads: Mark Kiptoo is to run the 38th edition of the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon on October 27. The Kenyan ran 2:07:50 twelve months ago to take the world record for a masters or veteran runner under 2:08 for the first time when he finished sixth in Frankfurt. All the signs are that the 43-year-old is capable of a further improvement on the world record as his aim is to win the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon.
