World Marathon champion Ruth Chepngetich, has been named in the 43rd edition of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon that will be held on 10th October 2012 in Chicago.
Chepngetich, who dropped out of the Olympic marathon at around 30 km, comes to Chicago as the race favorite. Sarah Hall ousted Chepngetich in a sprint for second place at the 2020 London Marathon, but all eyes will be on their rematch. Chepngetich is the only East African runner in an elite field that’s deep with American talent.
Other top notch elites on the list include Getaneh Molla and Seifu Tura from Ethiopia, Keira D’Amato (USA), and Emma Bates (USA).
