Male course record: 2:02:40 (Eliud Kipchoge, 2022)

Female course record: 2:16:02 (Brigid Kosgei, 2022)

The Tokyo Marathon is the newest of the six major world marathons, having only held its first race in 2007. Kenyan running standouts Eliud Kipchoge and Brigid Kosgei each set record times in 2022. Masakazu Fujiwara, who finished first after totaling a 2:12:19 time in 2020, remains the only Japanese male to win the Tokyo Marathon as of 2022.

Male course record: 2:03:02 (Geoffrey Mutai, 2011)

Female course record: 2:19:59 (Bizunesh Deba, 2014)

The Boston Marathon is almost as synonymous with Beantown as the Green Monster, Larry Bird, and clams. Marathon Monday, the third Monday in April, also includes a Boston Red Sox home game played shortly after 11 a.m. EDT. The Boston Marathon has included everything from runners wearing costumes to taiko-drum-playing musicians from Japan.

London Marathon

Date: Sunday, Apr 23, 2023

Male course record: 2:02:37 (Eliud Kipchoge, 2019)

Female course record: 2:15:25 (Paula Radcliffe, 2003)

The London Marathon may still be relatively new, having only been founded in 1981, but it’s quickly become a fan favorite with an atmosphere that matches the spectacle of the race itself. Although the event typically occurs in April, it has been held in October in recent years amid the pandemic. Participants have helped raise over 1 million GBP (over 1 million USD) for charity since the first London Marathon.

Berlin Marathon

Date: Saturday, Sep 24, 2023

Male course record: 2:01:39 (Eliud Kipchoge, 2018)

Female course record: 2:18:11 (Gladys Cherono, 2018)

Don’t be surprised to see history in the making at the 2023 Berlin Marathon. The 26-mile event has been the site of numerous world-record times since it was first held in 1974. Horst Milde, a baker and running enthusiast, established the Berlin Marathon in 1974. The course starts and finishes near the 18th-century Brandenburg Gate. The 2019 event set a record with 44,064 finishers.

Chicago Marathon

Date: Sunday, Oct 8, 2023

Male course record: 2:03:45 (Dennis Kimetto, 2013)

Female course record: 2:14:04 (Brigid Kosgei, 2019)

Although annual Chicago marathons were held in the early 20th century, it wasn’t until 1977 that the modern, and aptly-named, Chicago Marathon took place. Runners raise money for different charities, with the event securing over 10 million in fundraising every year from 2009 through 2019.

New York City Marathon

Date: Sunday, Nov 5, 2023

Male course record: 2:05:05 (Geoffrey Mutai, 2011)

Female course record: 2:22:31 (Margaret Okayo, 2003)

The New York City Marathon is the largest in the world, and not because it traverses all five of the Big Apple’s boroughs. Over 53,000 people finished the NYC Marathon in 2019, two years after a staggering 98,247 people applied to participate. ESPN has aired the popular race nationally since 2013.
