2021 Men’s Marathon World Rankings

Sapporo’s conditions were tough, but so was Eliud Kipchoge as he forged a 1:20 winning margin. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI/PHOTO RUN)

ANOTHER YEAR, ANOTHER No. 1 for Eliud Kipchoge, this one extending his record total to 6 (nobody else ever won more than 3). Although the spring season was virtually nonexistent, the tireless Kenyan won a 2:04:30 April race in the Netherlands before sewing up the top spot with his Olympic win…

THE WMM SEASON was totally discombobulated, with Tokyo ending up canceled altogether and traditional April fixtures Boston and London moving into a crowded 8-week fall window that included Berlin, Chicago and New York City. That precluded any WMM doubling…

THE NO. 2 SPOT went to yearly list leader Titus Ekiru, with wins in Milan and Abu Dhabi… He’s followed by Olympic 3rd- and 4th-placers Bashir Abdi and Lawrence Cherono, whose good wins in other races moved them ahead of silver medalist Abdi Nageeye… No. 10 Leul Gebrselassie didn’t win either race, but was the only one with a pair of sub-2:05s.
