Eluid Kipchoge, the course record holder of the Haspa Marathon Hamburg (2:05:30) and 2013 champion will be competing at the BMW Berlin Marathon on September 27, 2015. The world record-course in Berlin will see the clash of three superstars on the marathon scene. Two of Eluid’s main competitors in Berlin will be Emmanuel Mutai and Geoffrey Mutai (not related).
It will be up to these three Kenian runners to determine whoever is the best marathoner on this planet. Emmanuel Mutai might want to claim revenge, as he finished second in Berlin in 2014 clocking 2:03:13 – just twenty seconds behind Dennis Kimetto, who ran a world record (2:02:57) that day. Geoffrey Mutai is a 2:03 marathon guy as well – one of his greatest career achievements is winning the New York City Marathon.
We’ll have our eyes set on Eluid, who we have already witnessed finishing first in Hamburg. Within the past 10 months he has won the Chicago Marathon as well as the London Marathon. He will welcome the competition and let them push him to a very fast finishing time – it’s going to be a great race!
We’ll keep our fingers crossed for everyone competing at the BMW Berlin Marathon!
All doping tests that had been taken after the race on April 30th were negative. On the whole, urine samples of six elite athletes were taken and examined. As the agency responsible for the testing, the German National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) confrimed to us, all tests led to ‘negative’ results.
According to the chief-organiser of the race, Frank Thaleiser, “The results are satisfying and above all, they underline the importance of the job done by NADA as an independent monitoring body combined with the guideslines by the IAAF.”
Just before the blue line that marks the course of the Haspa Marathon Hamburg can disappear from the streets of the city – the excitement rises again as we are anticipating the next edition of the marathon.
