The 2022 Boston Marathon field, which marks the 50th anniversary of the first official women’s race in 1972, is expected to be highlighted by Tokyo Olympic marathon gold medalist Peres Jepchirchir of Kenya, who is making her Boston Marathon debut, and Tokyo Olympic Bronze Medalist Molly Seidel of the United States. The women’s field is also expected to feature former winners American Des Linden (2018) and Edna Kiplagat (2017) of Kenya, as well as Kenyan Joyciline Jepkosgei.

Americans in the men’s field are expected to include Colin Bennie, who finished seventh in last year’s Boston Marathon, Tokyo Olympian Jake Riley, Rio Olympian Jared Ward, and Scott Fauble.
