Associated Press Preview:

It’s been 13 years since an American won the New York Marathon when Meb Keflezighi crossed the finish line first in 2009.

There is a strong international field, including reigning champion Albert Korir of Kenya, expected to attend the 51st edition of the event on Sunday. It might be difficult to end this drought.

“I’m thrilled to be back in the United States last year, I was champion after finishing second in 2019,” Korir said. “I’m ready, but I know the peloton is competitive. I will try to push to defend my title.

Galen Rupp could offer the best chance to the Americans when he takes part in the New York race for the first time. He has won two medals at the Olympics – a silver medal in the 10,000 meters at the London Olympics in 2012; a bronze medal in the marathon at the 2016 Rio Olympics. He won the Chicago Marathon in 2017.

“I would love that,” Rupp said. “It’s a big field for sure. I think America as a whole has improved tremendously on the track over the past five to ten years. It’s good to see the Americans being competitive.

Rupp just finished in 19th place – a high for an American in the race – at the World Championships in July in Oregon. He suffered from a back injury for this race, but he is healthy now.

“I feel like things have happened over the past few months,” Rupp said. “I’m optimistic, that’s for sure. I had a herniated disc and it takes time to heal.

While Rupp competes on Sunday, defending champion Peres Jepchirchir of Kenya retired last month with an unspecified injury, leaving the race wide open.

Jepchirchir, 29, is the only person to have won the Olympic, Boston and New York marathons in a career, doing so in the space of a ninth month in 2021 and 2022. She won last year’s race in New York in 2 hours. , 22, minutes, 39 seconds, just 8 seconds off the course record.

“With Peres not being in the race, I think it’s really difficult to know who will take the lead,” said Kenyan-born American Aliphine Tuliamuk, who represented the United States at the Tokyo Olympics. . “I’ll see how I feel the moment a move is made and if I’ll go with them.”

All the pro runners were thrilled that the New York City Marathon was back in full force. The race will be at full capacity with 50,000 runners for the first time since 2019. The 2020 event was canceled and the 2021 race was held with a shrunken field of 25,010 runners due to the coronavirus pandemic.

An abnormally hot day is forecast for Sunday, with temperatures around 70 degrees.

“I don’t like it when it’s so hot,” Korir said. “We can’t do anything about the weather. You just need to drink more, so that’ll help.

DEFENDING TITLES

Wheelchair contestants Marcel Hug and Madison de Rozario will be looking to repeat themselves as winners and could claim the $50,000 prize for breaking the course record. Hug, a four-time winner in New York, was 2 minutes from the mark last year in 1:29.22.

“The condition will hopefully settle well with the heat,” Hug said.

De Rozario became the first Australian woman to win the New York City Marathon last year, beating the strong field by 3 minutes.

NON BINARY

The marathon will offer $5,000 to the top non-binary runner in the race, marking the first time a cash prize has been offered for this division. The New York Road Runners first introduced a non-binary category in June 2021. More than 60 runners are expected to compete in the category on Sunday.

“We wanted to make sure that all of our gender divisions were represented fairly,” said Kerin Hempel, CEO of New York Road Runners. “We are so proud that the race attracts such a diverse and global community of runners.”
