I like jumping on bandwagons. Who's likely to win?
For the women, look for two-time defending champion Mary Keitany (Kenya) and Aselefech Mergia (Ethiopia), who finished second last year.
For the men, watch for defending champion Stanley Biwott (Kenya), Ghirmay Ghebreslassie (Eritrea) and Lelisa Desisa (Ethiopia).
Here's a picture of Biwott (left) and Keitany.
