Mainova Frankfurt Marathon: Masters World Record holder Mark Kiptoo returns

(0 votes)

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.

(0 votes)

Four world-class Ethiopian runners have set their sights on breaking the recent Kenyan dominance when the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON takes place on September 29: Guye Adola, who finished second in an unofficial world record debut two years ago in Berlin, as well as Leul Gebrselassie, Sisay Lemma and Birhanu Legese all possess the potential to win the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON. Gebrselassie, Lemma and Legese have each triumphed over the marathon distance in the past ten months, running top-class times and all have personal bests in the region of 2:04.
