The race is chock full of former champions, Olympic champions and course record holders. 

The ING New York City Marathon once again boasts a strong field of international athletes for this year’s 43rd running, including past champions and course record holders, as well as winners and course-record holders of other major marathons such as London, Boston, Chicago and the Olympic Games. There is no shortage of sub-2:10 talent (and even sub-2:07 talent) in the field looking to dethrone reigning champion and course-record holder Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya.

Here’s a look at the top-5 international men’s to watch in this year’s race. Later this week, we’ll take separate looks at the top international women, as well as the top American men and women.
