Elite Series XIII of the Abbott World Marathon Majors will conclude at the TCS New York City Marathon on November 7.

The series began way back in October 2019 at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon when Kenya's Brigid Kosgei smashed the women's world record by clocking 2:14:04.

At the time, no one could foresee that the next race of the series in New York City that year would be the last with mass participation fields for more than a year.

Now, with the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic behind us, the world of marathon running has been safely grinding back into gear. Following the return of four Majors races this autumn, only Tokyo has been unable to welcome back its race to the roads, with the 2021 event rescheduled to take place in March 2022.

Now, New York City will host the long-awaited series finale, where we will learn exactly who will become the new champions. Here is how things stand across all four divisions with one race left.
