BIRMINGHAM, UK (July 28) — The following is the entry list for the men’s marathon run at the Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham, on Saturday (30). Northern Irish runner, Kevin Seaward, who finished fourth at the last edition at Gold Coast 2018, is the highest returner this year.

Seaward finished fourth at the Commonwealth Games 2018, but he enters this year’s race aiming to at least step on the podium, despite the presence of some very good runners, especially those representing Team Kenya.
