Cosmas Lagat of Kenya, the Defending Champion at the TMM 2020 is looking to start a new phase in his life with his wife expecting their daughter. This event in his life has given him more motivation to win this year’s edition.

Cosmas says the diet for a long-distance runner is a simple rice, ugali(a type of maize flour porridge, vegetables, beef and a lot of chai. Although he does take some energy boosting drinks during the marathon, he doesn’t believe in any other kind of supplement.
