          That’s 5 world Majors in 48 days too bad Tokyo did’nt join the fun and Postponed that would be 6 majors in the Fall. I wonder who would win the elite series.

              how do you think elites will do this? just pick one? is the Olympics going to mess things up further?

                I believe the Olympic marathons are scheduled for around August 8, so about a month before Boston.

                  Same day as the Melbourne Marathon, so a lot of Aussies will be choosing between the 2.

                      I’ve run Berlin, London,Paris and NYC...

                       

                      London is fast and has unbelievable crowd support because it’s mainly a charity event for the masses. Paris is a beautiful course and city...I would recommend this race...and it’s a PB/PR course. 👍. NYC is awesome.....loved the race and city...it could be a PR course if you run it smart. 😁.  Berlin - My least favourite marathon.
