What you need to know:

  • This is the first marathon this year for world record holder Eliud Kipchoge after finishing eighth in London last year
  • The one-off marathon has been organised to serve up an opportunity for athletes to run a fast race and in many cases to help secure a qualification mark for the rescheduled Tokyo Olympic Games
  • Kipchoge is using the race as part of his build up towards the Olympic Games where he is looking forward to defend his title

The NN Mission Marathon will be going down on April 18 in the Netherlands after a new venue was announced by the organisers on Tuesday evening.
