Olympic 10,000m silver medallist Paul Tanui will be making his long-awaited debut over the distance and he will definitely be bracing up for a tough test.
Kipchoge has also set the marathon world record on the Berlin course and this will definitely be a perfect course for him to pull off a surprising performance.
The winner of the marathon will walk away with Ksh 7,355,000 while the second-place finisher will bag Ksh 3,751,050. The third and fourth-place finishers will walk away with Ksh 1,838,750 and Ksh 1,103,250 respectively.
The fifth-place finisher will bag Ksh 735,500 while the sixth-place to 10th-place finishers will walk away with Ksh 441,300 each.
An athlete who breaks a world record will walk away with an additional Ksh 7,355,000 while athletes who finish within 2:03:30 (men) and 2:19:00 (women) will bag an additional Ksh 4,413,000.
Meanwhile, the Berlin Marathon’s prize money has come a long way since its inception in 1974. In those early days, the winner took home a modest Ksh 147,100.
However, over the years, the marathon’s prestige and the financial resources of its organizers have transformed it into one of the most lucrative marathons in the world.
