The race holds many cherished memories for the Kenyan marathon great, and in his last appearance in the German capital four years ago, he claimed the world record of 2:01:39, which still stands today. Kipchoge will be chasing a fourth Berlin Marathon title in this year’s event, and should he achieve the feat, he will match the Ethiopian great Haile Gebrselassie as a four-time winner of the event.
“Berlin is the fastest course; it’s where a human being can showcase its potential to push the limits,” he said.
His main rival will be title defender Guye Adola from Ethiopia. “This year, I will try to run even faster and achieve a time under 2:03:00 hours,” said Adola.
The organisers are expecting over 45 000 runners from around 150 nations.
