Remember the Great Recession? - It wasn’t that very long ago, starting in December of 2007 and lasting until early summer of 2009. The stock market was a mess, homes were foreclosed in droves, and amidst all the misery and uncertainty, what the running industry called the Second Running Boom (the first began in the late 1970s, another time of profound economic hardship) was born.

Defending champions Cosmas Lagat and Worknesh Alemu both proclaimed themselves fit and ready to not only bid for back-to- back titles at the Tata Mumbai Marathon, but the pair also aim to attack the course records on Sunday (19 January).

Kenenisa Bekele is the fastest runner on the start list of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON this Sunday. The Ethiopian, who is a three time Olympic Champion and still holds the world records for 5,000 and 10,000 m, clocked 2:03:03 when he won the BWM BERLIN-MARATHON in 2016. After a number of disappointing marathon races he wants to bounce back on Sunday in Berlin.

A super fast and exciting men’s race is in prospect at the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON on Sunday. In Year One of Marathon history after Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya’s fabulous world record of 2:01:39 here in 2018, an attack on the world record has not been a subject for discussion.

Gladys Cherono is keen to write another chapter of history on Sunday in Germany’s biggest and most spectacular Road Race. A year ago the Kenyan broke the course record in the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON which had stood for 13 years and a fourth triumph here would give her more wins than any other female runner. Cherono has a further goal in breaking her course record of 2:18:11 hours. While the elite are aiming to produce world class times of under 2:20, Melat Kejeta is hoping to run 2:22 which would be a sensational debut at the distance for the former Ethiopian who received German citizenship only in March. The Olympic qualifying time for the women’s marathon in next year’s Games in Tokyo is 2:29:30, a target also shared by the home favourite Anna Hahner.

The development of the “Athens Marathon. The Authentic“ appears unstoppable. The birthplace of the marathon is also increasingly at the heart of contemporary running. Over 2,500 years after the Battle of Marathon in 490 BCE and almost 125 years since the first Olympic Marathon at the start of the modern Olympic era in Athens in 1896, the Athens Marathon.
