What you need to know:

  • US-based star stays confident.
  • With Cheruiyot the star attraction at this Sunday’s Frankfurt Marathon, her second career marathon race, Saina will travel to USA for the prestigious New York Marathon next Sunday (November 5) looking to bag a good time.
  • The US-based Saina will line up with her mentors Mary Keitany and Edna Kiplagat, two of Kenya’s world-leading marathon runners, at the “Big Apple.”

Like Olympic 5,000 metres champion Vivian Cheruiyot, Betsy Saina is slowly getting familiar with the marathon after making the big transition from the track to road last year.
