Rainha Isabel II dá a partida para a Maratona de Londres 2018
April 22, 2018 -- A 38ª Maratona de Londres começa em Blackheath em Greenwich e termina no The Mall. A rainha Isabel II vai dar a partida oficial de um
pódio no castelo de Windsor, fazendo chegar o som a Greenwich para colocar 40.000 atletas em marcha às 10h00 da manhã.
Two of the greatest marathon fields in history will contest the elite men’s and women’s races at the London Marathon when last year’s champions Daniel Wanjiru and Mary Keitany return to defend their titles.
In addition to Wanjiru (Kenya), the men’s race will feature the three greatest distance runners of their generation. Eliud Kipchoge (Kenya), Kenenisa Bekele (Ethiopia) and Mo Farah (Britain) have a combined total of eight Olympic gold medals and 12 World Championship golds between them.
Kenya’s Keitany will again go head-to-head with Ethiopia’s Tirunesh Dibaba, the 2017 runner-up in London who went on to win the Chicago Marathon in October.
