Among the featured runners competing on Sunday is Kenya’s Elvis Cheboi, who believes he will be a title contender, despite entering with the fastest personal best.

“It was tough but I accepted it,” Cheboi said, according to the event’s media release. “You see, it was my first attempt so I can say I tried my best.
“After I finished I felt like I would never again run the marathon. My body was feeling pain. My coach Gabriele (Nicola) helped me and encouraged me with a lot of wisdom and said ‘don’t give up you will do it one day’.”
In the meantime, his fellow Kenyan compatriot Alfred Kipchirchir, who makes his marathon debut in this race, hopes to run a sub 2:06.
