The 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon, an IAAF gold label road race, will take place on Sunday, October 12. The men's field will lead world record holder in 5000m and 10000m Kenenisa Bekele, who will face three sub 2:05 marathoners;  Eliud Kipchoge (2:04:05), Tadese Tola (2:04:49) and Bernard Koech (2:04:53). Bekele in his debut marathon race in Paris on April 6 set a course record of 2:05:04.  The Ethiopian said that his main goal in this Sunday's Chicago marathon is to break the coarse record of 2:03.45 set by world marathon record holder Dennis Kimetto a year ago. 

Defending Chicago marathon champion Rita Jeptoo (PR 2:18:57) will lead the women's field. Also Florence Kiplagat (PR 2:19:44) and Ethiopia's Mare Dibaba (PR 2:04:53) who will be among contenders for the win at the 2014 Chicago marathon.
