The men’s marathon world record has fallen at the Berlin Marathon six times in the past 12 years and it could be in danger again in Sunday’s race.
Last year, Dennis Kimetto of Kenya pulled away from compatriot Emmanuel Mutai at the 37th kilometer, following a 14:10 5K split from 30K to 35K, and crossed the finish line in 2:02:57. That time sliced 26 seconds from the world record set in the 2013 Berlin Marathon by Wilson Kipsang, also of Kenya.
This year, Kenyans Eliud Kipchoge and Emmanuel Mutai look to lower the mark for a seventh time.
