Last week, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon released its 2019 elite American fields. So we know who is going to Chicago.
We decided it would be useful for fans of the sport to know what other top US marathoners are doing this fall as well as each passing day gets us closer to the US Olympic Marathon Trials on February 29th. It definitely appears that more men will be running a fall marathon than women which makes sense as the men need the standard.
Here are the fall 2019 marathon plans for the American men and women who have run under 2:15 and 2:32 in 2018-2019. Note, the list below counts aided courses like Boston and CIM (We initially started this thread and were missing those so we tried again).
