2018 Men’s Marathon World Rankings

Eliud Kipchoge didn’t want for pace help in his World Record race in Berlin. (VICTOR SAILER/PHOTO RUN)

TICKING OFF THE BOXES: yearly leader, check; World Record, check; undefeated, check; win 2 (it’s basically impossible to win 3) World Marathon Majors races, check. Oh yeah, and let’s not forget, Athlete Of The Year: CHECK!

ALL-TIME RANKING STATS only bolster Kipchoge’s credentials. Not only is he the first to win 5 times (as he was last year at 4), he’s also soaring up the all-time scoring list, which leads us to a trivia quiz: what do Juma Ikangaa, Haile Gebrselassie, Frank Shorter, Bill Rodgers & Rob de Castella have in common? All of them dropped a spot on the event’s all-time scoring list as the Kenyan great soared from No. 9 to No. 4. He now has 52 points. Ahead of him? Veikko Karvonen 65, Wilson Kipsang 56, Toshihiko Seko 55…

THE RUNNER-UP SPOT went to Mo Farah in his first real season of marathoning, which produced a WMM win (Chicago) and 3rd. That was rated just ahead of Mosinet Geremew’s Dubai win and Chicago 2nd, since the Briton won their head-to-head match… The first 5 is rounded out by Tola Shura with a pair of WMM runner-up finishes and Leul Gebrselassie, who didn’t run any of the WMMs, but did have a pair of 2:04 finishes.
