Morning all! Anyone for 26 miles 385 yards? No? Good. Luckily for us, though, some hardy folk are into precisely that, prostrating their pain for our entertainment lest we pass an hour or two of weekend with no live sport. Off they go, so off we go.

Sadly, any preview of the men’s competition begins with who’s not here: well, sort of. Eliud Kipchoge, who broke the world record last week in Berlin, isn’t racing, which isn’t ideal, but is handing out mini-marathon medals, which is great. And maybe his lack of running will turn out to be a good thing, because this might just be the last time we see the great Kenenisa Bekele run. It seems unlikely he’ll trouble the podium, but with a genius of his aspect, well, who knows.

Meantime, the women’s marathon will be a belter. We’ve seven competitors with lifetime bests under 2 hours and 19 minutes, and Joyciline Jepkosgei, last term’s champion is favourite. But Yalemzerf Yehualaw, Ashete Bekere and Judith Korir can also do absolutely ludicrous stuff beyond all of our comprehensions, so let’s see how that one goes too.

key events

Hug continues to work Romanchuk, 18.50 to 10km. That’s fast, that is, is that, but the pursuers aren’t too far behind and Weir has settled there.

at the women, In front is a group with the three required pacemakers in between.

Hug does his best to shake Daniel Romanchuk – so far without success – while in the women’s wheelchair race Catherine Debrunner is off the field.

London, What a city. My mum used to talk about it a lot when I was a kid but I wasn’t upset because even though I’m from there it didn’t feel part of my identity because my football team was from Manchester. However, as a teenager I revised that opinion when I started bowling around on my bill, and as an adult I absolutely love it. There are few places in the world where you can enjoy doing now.

The predicted rain holds out at least for the time being. It looks like a pretty decent day for the sport.

Here we go, the elite women!

Paula Radcliffe likes Bashir Abdi and Sisay Lemma in the men’s race. I wonder who the latter’s favorite poet is.

Men and women stand on opposite sides of the street so they don’t get in each other’s way, Men’s Marcel Hug, whom you may remember from various Paralympics and marathon successes – Berlin (2011, 2012, 2021), New York City (2013, 2016, 2017, 2021), London (2014, 2016), Chicago ( 2016) and Boston (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2021) – come out on top.

In communications, Steve Cram and Tanni Grey-Thompson discuss the greatly improved prize money offer, now close to those obtained by able-bodied athletes. great stuff

Jill Scott, Leah Williamson and Ellen White Get our wheelchair athletes away!

Favor.

Charlotte Purdue has withdrawn from tonight’s TCS London Marathon due to illness. The 31-year-old was Britain’s No1 hope in the women’s elite race but has been feeling ill since Friday night.

Ah, BBC shows us VT of the Weirwolf. What an inspiration he is. Oh, and I just found out he’s 43, which I may or may not be. To be clear: I have neither raced 23 races in a row nor won eight of them.

So we’re six minutes from the start and in that first group will be David Weir, who is running his 23rd consecutive London Marathon. It’s amazing behavior and has resulted in eight wins – more than anyone else – and I’m sure he’s aiming to make it to nine today.

times

Elite Wheelchair Race Men and Women: 8.50am

Elite Women’s Race: 9am

Elite Men’s Race and Mass Start: 9.40am

Gabby Logan just interviewed a guy named Andy Farrer whose girlfriend killed herself six years ago. He started out ironing to the extreme and now runs with a board to encourage questions and get people talking about mental health; He also has the teddy she was holding when she died, noting that he was dying for it. I’m gone.

No doubt many of you have run the marathon before – Submit your anecdotes to share with the group. I went up to someone once, he was hurt, in pain and in his headphones and sunglasses had no idea we were there. Sorry, film rights have already been opted.

A little more on Bekele.

My outside bet to win: my editor and Guardian Sport legend James Dart. Should circumstances conspire against him, he will still collect money for the Southwest Children’s Hospice. You know what to do.

preamble

Good morning everyone! Anyone for 26 miles 385 yards? No? Good. Luckily for us, some die-hard folks are into it and throw down their pain for our entertainment, lest we go an hour or two of the weekend without watching live sports. You go, so let’s go.

Unfortunately, every men’s competition preview starts with who’s not here: well, sort of. Eliud Kipchoge, who broke the world record in Berlin last week, doesn’t race, which isn’t ideal, but he does give out mini-marathon medals, which is great. And perhaps his lack of running will prove to be a good thing, as this could be the last time we see Kenenisa Bekele’s superb run. It seems unlikely he’ll disrupt the podium, but with a genius of his looks, well, who knows.

Meanwhile, the women’s marathon is going to be a smash hit. We have seven competitors with lifetime bests under 2 hours 19 minutes and last year’s champion Joyciline Jepkosgei is a favourite. But Yalemzerf Yehualaw, Ashete Bekere and Judith Korir can also do absolutely ridiculous things beyond our comprehension, so let’s see how that works too.

Start: 8:30 a.m. CET
