La maratona riservata agli atleti élite che si svolgerà domenica 4 ottobre a Londra, verrà corsa su un circuito disegnato intorno al parco St James’s, nel centro della città, e terminerà, come ogni anno, sul Mall.

La gara prevede anche lo svolgimento della competizioni sulle wheelchair, e verrà tenuta in una biosfera sicura, come fatto per molti dei maggiori sport in questa parte dell’anno.

Guardiamo come è composta la lista dei partenti, che vedrà la sfida tra Eliud Kipchoge e Kenenisa Bekele, due dei più formidabili corridori di maratona cella storia.
