The runner-up at last year’s New York City Marathon, Mutai is back with one goal in mind—win at all costs. The 27-year-old Kenyan followed up his second-place finish in the Big Apple last fall with a big win earlier this year at the London Marathon. In that race, he shattered the previous course record running 2:04:40 to beat compatriot Martin Lel, who will also race this year’s New York City Marathon.
