The defending champion for the men is Ethiopa’s Lelisa Desisa, who finished the famous 26.2-mile trek in two hours, nine minutes and 17 seconds last year, giving him his second Boston Marathon victory in three years.
A third win would make Desisa just the eighth man in history with three Boston championships.
“He’s better than ever,” said his coach, Haji Adilo. “We increased his mileage a little bit. Plus, he has experience, especially of the course.”
On the women’s side, Caroline Rotich will look to make it two in a row for her and six in a row for the country of Kenya. She’ll have plenty of competition in the form of 2012 Olympic gold medalist Tiki Gelana, two-time New York Marathon runner-up Buzunesh Deba and reigning Dubai Marathon champ Tirfi Tsegaye.
With the US Olympic marathon trials having happened in February in Los Angeles, there won’t be a major American presence in the elite fields. But with 30,000-plus participants, there also won’t be any shortage of excitement in between Hopkinton and Boston.1 Comment Discover the Stories That Matter

In this story
Gladiators, mark your calendars.
ABC's Scandal is coming to BET with two major marathons in August, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
The cable network will kick off the Kerry Washington starrer with season one and the first few installments from its sophomore season with the first of two 14-hour marathons on Saturday, Aug. 10 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The second is set for the following week on Aug. 17, also from 8 a.m.-10 p.m.
The following Wednesday, Aug. 21, the political thriller about a D.C. fixer with professional and personal ties to the president (Tony Goldwyn) will finish up its second season and air for two hours with back-to-back episodes starting at 9 p.m.
Once the episodes run out for both seasons, the series will start over with the first seven from its freshman run, airing in order on Wednesdays leading up to the third season premiere on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 10 p.m. on ABC.
BET acquired early syndication rights to the Shonda Rhimes drama Monday. Washington and recurring guest star Dan Bucatinsky picked up Emmy nominations for their roles in the fast-paced drama on Thursday.
The marathon will provide both an opportunity for megafans to catch up and, ABC would hope, expose new viewers.
