Shura Kitata and Brigid Kosgei will defend the title they won last year at the 2021 London Marathon scheduled for tomorrow, October 3. In the race there will be four athletes with a personal best under 2h03′ and another four athletes capable of breaking the 2h04′ barrier in the men’s race. Nine athletes have personal bests under 2h20′ and five have run under 2h19′ in the women’s race.
Ethiopian Kitata won last year’s edition of the London Marathon in 2h05:41 in the rain beating Kenyan Vincent Kipchumba by one second. With this triumph Kitata ended the domination of Eliud Kipchoge, who won four times in London in 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019.
Kipchoge, who saw his winning streak of ten consecutive successes interrupted, will not be at the start in this edition because the edition of the London Marathon comes just a few weeks after the Tokyo Olympics.
