Tokyo Marathon Men's Preview: The 2017 World Marathon Majors Kick Off & Wilson Kipsang Wants the World Record?

Wilson Kipsang just ran 2:03:13 in Berlin. He says he wants his world record back. We think a course record (2:05:42) is more reasonable. But it should be exciting nonetheless and the best part about it is you don't have to get up early to enjoy. Live Saturday night during prime-time.

Chicago Men's Preview: Kenenisa Bekele and Eliud Kipchoge clash again - Is it time to say bye-bye to world record holder Dennis Kimetto's 2:03:45 course record?

Last year's Chicago race was truly special as Dennis Kimetto and Emmanuel Mutai waged an epic battle that resulted in the decimation of the course record. What will happen when Eliud Kipchoge and Kenenisa Bekele clash on Sunday?  Those two greats will be challenged by Tadese Tola (2:04:49 pb), Bernard Koech (2:04:53 pb), Sammy Kitwara (58:48 half marathon pb) and Dickson Chumba (Tokyo Marathon champ). The American field features 13:18/27:24 man Bobby Curtis (2:13:24 pb), the red-hot Christo Landry (U.S. 10k road champ) but the biggest talker of all has been Matt Llano who is dreaming of a 2:08 in his debut.
