63.15 will be the pace for first group of men where possible to think to find Eric Ndiema,Shumi Dechasa,Felix Keny and Philemon Rono as probably favourites of the day!!A race absolutely open to many solutions after withdrawing fo Haile Gebreselassie for allergies!!Happy to note in second group famosu japanese Yuki Kawauchi who will run another marathon to try to close near 2h08 for another time in his amazing career!!
ELITE FIELD HAMBURGMARATHON WITH DETAIL BIO ABOUT TOP ATHLETES
A bit over 72 is the pace for women where probably Georgina Rono will be the favourite of the race,probably not on her best time...but for sure important time!!
Behind her two ethiopians a Mekash and Gizaw ready to follow the favourite kenyan.
Pay attention to a more intelligent group who will start reasonable at 74.30 with the chinese HE and Yue with some kenyans.These girls will be probably able to close fast second part of race if shape will help them.
More than 16000 people to the start for one of the more important german road race .... a city very surprising for myself!!!
