2016 Boston Marathon Updated Elite Field – Geoffrey Mutai Pulls Out
April 5, 2016
The BAA has announced that 2011 Boston champ and course record holder Geoffrey Mutai has withdrawn from this year’s race “due to not meeting training goals”. Added to the women’s field was Ethiopian Amane Beriso, who has the 5th fastest debut of all time with 2:20:48 from Dubai 2016.
Other changes include Abdelmajid El Hissouf and Purity Cherotich pulling out due to knee injuries.
