What are the London Marathon 2018 odds?
The London Marathon is happening today and tens of thousands of ordinary people are, bizarrely, going to be running for the best part of 30 miles.
Whilst it is a fantastic achievement to get round 26.2 miles in any time, the elite runners will be doing so in just over two hours, which is mind-bogglingly fast.
Two years ago, Eliud Kipchoge set a course record by completing the London Marathon in 2:03:05 to win the race for a second time.
In 2017 Mary Keitany broke the womens world marathon record by running it in 2:17:01, and she is back this year to try and beat it.
Mo Farah will be running the London Marathon for the second time after having a crack at it in 2014.
The Olympic hero managed it in 2:08:21 which saw him finish eighth – just under four minutes behind winner Wilson Kipsang.
The bookies give Farah a chance of winning the race this time around, but he is comfortably behind the favourite in the odds, the man who has won it twice before – Kipchoge.
The 33-year-old Kenyan is a legendary marathon runner, winning gold at the Rio 2016 Olympics and having won marathons in Hamburg, Rotterdam, Chicago, London and Berlin.
The bookmakers have him as the clear favourite to triumph once again and it will take a monumental effort from Farah to beat him.
