Erick Mose won the 2013 Los Angeles Marathon and will return to defend his title on the same course.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Defending champion Erick Mose of Kenya and runner-up Julius Keter of Kenya have committed to the Los Angeles Marathon.

The race to be run March 9 will follow the same course that begins at Dodger Stadium and finishes near the Santa Monica Pier.

Last year, Mose rallied in the final two miles to overtake countryman Keter, the grandson of Olympian Kip Keino, and win. Also committing to the race are Ethiopians Gezahegn Alemayehu, Raji Assefa and Fikre Assefa, along with rising Americans Aaron Braun, Adam Roach and Stephan Shay.

The women's field includes five top Ethiopian runners: Gulume Chala, Degefa Bruktayit Eshetu and Genet Getaneh, along with Olena Burkovska of Ukraine
