• Kipsand to Run NYC Marathon

Article source:

Kenyan Wilson Kipsang, who set the marathon world record of 2:03.23 last year in Berlin will make his New York City Marathon debut in November 2.

 

Kipasang will face a strong field featuring three previous New York Marathon Winners including course record holder Geoffrey Mutai.

Mutai set worlds fastest marathon time of 2:03:02 in 2011 in Boston, but IAAF did not ratify the mark as the world record since the course has long downhills and straights.

There will be total of seven previous NYC Marathon winners from the men's and women's side: Gebre Gebremariam (2010) and Meb Keflezighi (2009) on the men's side, and Priscah Jeptoo (2013), Firehiwot Dado (2011), Edna Kiplagat (2010) and Jelena Prokopcuka (2005, 2006) for the women.

The Bronx resident Buzunesh Deba (Ethiopian)  in the last two NYC Marathons finished in 2nd place and will return on September 2 to be the first New Yorker to win the NYC Marathon.
