The Berlin Marathon is one the biggest highlights of the road running calendar and one to watch if you like to see world records being set. The last eight men’s world records have been set on the Berlin course.

That streak includes last year’s race, when Eliud Kipchope stormed to the current record of 2hrs 1min 9secs, winning the Berlin Marathon for the fourth time in the process. Kipchoge headlines the field again in 2023 and will be aiming for another world record to make up for a disappointing race earlier this year at the Boston Marathon.

Kipchoge will be challenged by a strong field of male elites, including Mark Korir and Amos Kipruto. Meanwhile the favorites for the women’s race include last year’s winner Tigist Assefa and Sheila Chepkirui.
