The Virgin London Marathon 2018 includes a deep field of elite athletes.

The men’s field will be led by Eliud Kipchoge. You can count on Kenenisa Bekele to give Kipchoge a run for his money. Or, can Mo Farah defy the odds and come out on top? Defending champion Daniel Wanjiru and two times World Champion Abel Kirui will also be battling the London Marathon.

The women’s field will be led by Mary Keitany. She has made it clear that she will attempt to break Paula Radcliffe’s World Record of 2 hours 15 minutes 25 seconds. However, Tirunesh Dibaba will be there every step of the way. She will give Keitany a run for her money.
