It's difficult to look beyond the specialists from African countries, Kenya and Ethiopia, while predicting the overall men's and women's champions in today's Mumbai Marathon.

A total of 18 men and 12 women elite foreign runners will be gunning for the top prize. Ethiopian Solomon Deksisa, last year's Tokyo Marathon winner, and Kenya's Joshua Kipkorir, runner-up here in 2017, appear to be the frontrunners among men. Among elite foreign women, Kenya's defending champion Bornes Kitur and 2017 Ljubljana Marathon winner Shoko Genemo of Ethiopia are among the favourites for the overall top prize.
