This is the match we’ve been waiting for! The 2 fastest marathoners in history are now set to clash on April 26th, 2020.
Eliud Kipchoge – Marathon Personal Best – 2:01:39
Kenenisa Bekele – Marathon Personal Best – 2:01:41
For the past 6 years, Eliud Kipchoge has been the undisputed king of the marathon, and we’ve yet to see anyone genuinely challenge him over the distance.
However in September of 2019, Kenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia ran a 2:01:41 at the Berlin Marathon, only running 2 seconds within Kipchoge’s seemingly untouchable record.
With this announcement, you can be sure that both athletes are putting their best foot forward with their training, and over the next few months, we’ll certainly have an epic race to look forward to.
Thanks for watching!
