The Kenyan had previously bared his intentions to retain his title.

In a statement made available to the Communications and Media Department of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon, Kiptum said:

“I want to retain my title and run a sub 2.10:00 on February 11, 2017.”

“I came to Lagos as an underdog, nobody gave a chance, and people were expecting Kiplaglat to win, so I ran without any pressure. I know I will be the center of attraction on February 11, but am mentally and physically prepare for the challenge, I know am in good shape to win and do it under 2.100.”

Kipton is expected to smile home with $50,000 for his victory today.
