2014 London Women’s Field Released: LRC 4 Quick Takes – Priscah Jeptoo To Try To Defend As Tirunesh Dibaba Debuts At Star-Studded 2014 London Marathon The 2014 London field is totally stacked as Priscah Jeptoo, who was totally unbeatable in 2013, will clash with Tirunesh Dibaba, who is making the most anticipated women’s marathon debut in 10+ years (maybe ever?).

2014 Boston Field Released LRC Three Thoughts About The 2014 Boston Marathon Field There certainly won’t be talk of Boston being watered down in 2014 as both fields are quite strong. The men’s field includes TFN’s world #1 and #2 marathoners from 2013, Dennis Kimetto and Lelisa Desisa, and the women’s field is led by sub-2:20 women Mare Dibaba and Rita Jeptoo.
