London Marathon 2024 Odds: Tamirat Tola and Tigst Assefa start as favourites

Here are the latest odds for the Men's and Women's London Marathon events on Sunday 21st April 2024.

After setting a new record when winning the New York Marathon in November, Ethopian runner Tamirat Tola has been priced up as the 7/4 favourite to win the 2024 Men's London Marathon.

Tola is set to compete in the London Marathon for the fourth time after finishing 6th twice before last year's third-placed finish behind the late Kelvin Kiptum.

He may have to improve on his New York Marathon time of 2:04:58 in London, however, with the likes of compatriot Mosinet Geremew and Kenya's Alexander Mutiso also expected to challenge.

Victory for either Tola or Geremew would see them become the fifth Ethiopian man to win the London Marathon, which would tie Ethopia level with the United Kingdom on six victories in the race.

Kenya remain out in front with 17 wins in the race, including eight of the last 10 London Marathons.

The Men's London Marathon has been won by an Ethiopian or Kenyan runner in every race since USA's Khalid Khannouchi win in 2002 and any chance of bucking that trend this weekend could sit with Brazil's Daniel do Nascimento, who is 40/1 to cross the finishing line first.

2024 Men's London Marathon odds

  • Tamirat Tola - 7/4
  • Mosinet Geremew - 4/1
  • Alexander Mutiso - 4/1
  • Dawit Wolde - 10/1
  • Daniel Mateiko - 10/1
  • Kenenisa Bekele - 12/1
  • Seifu Tara - 16/1
  • Kinde Atanaw - 16/1
  • Leul Gebresilase - 16/1
  • Addisu Gobena - 20/1

World record-holder Tigst Assefa could make it a double for Ethiopia in the Women's London Marathon and she is the pre-race 10/11 favourite to prevail in London.

The 27-year-old broke the world record by completing September's Berlin Marathon in a staggering time of 2:11:53 and she is the one to beat this weekend.

The current London Marathon record of 2:17:01, set by Mary Keitany of Kenya in 2017, could also be in jeopardy if Assefa can repeat her Berlin heroics.

Her main challengers could be two-time champion Brigid Kosgei and 2022 winner Yalemzerf Yehualaw.

2024 Women's London Marathon odds

  • Tigst Assefa - 10/11
  • Brigid Kosgei - 11/2
  • Ruth Chepngetich - 11/2
  • Yalemzerf Yehualaw - 8/1
  • Tigist Ketema - 10/1
  • Almaz Ayana - 12/1
  • Peres Jepchirchir - 14/1
  • Megertu Alemu - 16/1
  • Joyciline Jepkosgei - 18/1
  • Sheila Chepkirui - 40/1
