Three of the four fastest men in history will take to the roads in pursuit of points and prizes over the next few weeks as Series X of the Abbott World Marathon Majors hots up through the autumn with three world-class races in the space of six weeks.

After two thrilling contests at the Olympic Games in Rio, an array of global medalists, AbbottWMM champions and world record breakers will seek to make their mark on the Series X leaderboards in Berlin, Chicago and New York City.

With Olympic gold medalists and Virgin Money London Marathon champions Eliud Kipchoge and Jemima Sumgong topping the standings on maximum points, only victory can put their challengers in contention for the prestigious championship to be awarded following the Series' climax at next year's April 17, 2017 Boston.

The autumn road show gets underway with the BMW BERLIN MARATHON on September 25 where former world record holder Wilson Kipsang takes on his Kenyan compatriot, history's third quickest marathon runner, Emmanuel Mutai.
