How To Watch The Chicago Marathon


Hot on the heels of Tigist Assefa’s world-record breaking run at the Berlin Marathon, we might see more records tumble at the Chicago Marathon this year, with the second-fastest man in history—Kelvin Kiptum—lining up in the men’s field.

Kiptum ran 2hr 1min 25sec to win the London Marathon earlier this year, just 16 seconds slower than Eliud Kipchoge’s record, and while Kiptum himself says he isn’t in shape to set a record in Chicago, we hope that’s just an attempt at lowering expectations. The main rival to Kiptum in Chicago is Benson Kipruto, who won the race last year, while the top male Americans in the field include Galen Rupp and Conner Mantz.
