Bonus: Bekele is in Boston! Breaking Down 2022 Boston Marathon Field with Elite Athlete Coordinator Mary Kate Shea

4 months ago

The 2022 Boston Marathon pro fields are amazing and Mary Kate Shea, the Boston elite athlete coordinator, joined us to talk about the fields with the release of the men's field which includes Kenenisa Bekele taking on Geoffrey Kamworor, plus the fastest marathoners in the world in 2021 (Titus Ekiru 2:02:57) and 2020 (Evans Chebet 2:03:00), defending Boston champ Benson Kipruto, New York champ Albert Korir, and Lawrence Cherono.

The women's field is absolutely loaded with Peres Jepchirchir vs Joyciline Jepkosgei vs Molly Seidel (and we discuss it but also broke it down on yesterday's regular pod).
