Props to Chicago: Galen Rupp will battle strong international field as he tries to repeat at Chicago Marathon

The international fields for the 2018 Chiago Marathon are out and this year we have no fears about whether Chicago is being watered down to insure a victory by Galen Rupp. If Rupp is to defend his crown, he'll have to defeat the winners of the following marathons in 2018: Dubai, Tokyo, Rotterdam, Paris and Boston. The American hopefuls on the women's side, Jordan Hasay and Amy Cragg, also face increased competition as well.
