While Eliud Kipchoge will be running on the streets of London Marathon this Sunday the 28th of April, Ezekiel Kemboi will be making his marathon debut in Hamburg; the same marathon that Kipchoge did his debut in 2013 setting a new course record of 2:05:30. Five years later, the course record still stands and perhaps Kemboi will be the one to set a new one on his debut. Time will tell.
