• Holder Kosgei to lead star-studded lineup at London Marathon

January 13, 2020

Of the nine fastest women in history, five will be in London. Average PB of those top five entrants: 2:17:17.

Women’s marathon world record holder Brigid Kosgei will return to defend her title at this year’s London Marathon, organisers said on Monday.

Kenya’s Kosgei retained her Chicago Marathon crown last October in two hours, 14 minutes and four seconds to break Briton Paula Radcliffe’s 16-year-old world mark.
