50th NYC Marathon Preview - Bekele, the Olympic Champ, Molly Seidel

6 months ago

The 50th New York City Marathon is almost here.

Kenenisa Bekele will be on the streets of NYC for the first time taking on world half marathon record holder Kibowitt Kandie in his debut. Olympic champ Peres Jepchirchir takes on American Olympic bronze medallist Molly Seidel.

We break it all down and is this the greatest LetsRun.com thread ever?
