Eliud Kipchoge won the London Marathon and the Berlin Marathons in 2015, making him the best male marathoner of the year. Mare Dibaba had a busy marathon year: in January 2015, she ran 2:19:52 to win the Xiamen Marathon. In April, Mare was second in the Boston Marathon, and finally, in August, Mare Dibaba won the World Champs marathon in a run to the very finish line.

The Association of International Marathons and Distance Races gives this award out each year at the Athens Marathon (the classic). We at RunBlogRun thinks it is most appropriate to give out in Athens and love that AIMS does this important award.
