Eliud Kipchoge to attempt to break two-hour barrier
Addis Ababa, May 6, 2019 (FBC) -Eliud Kipchoge will attempt to break the two-hour marathon barrier in the Ineos 1:59 Challenge later this year.
The Kenyan, 34, holds the world record of two hours one minute 39 seconds but this attempt would not be an official record as he will be assisted by in-out pacemakers.
He clocked 2:00.25 in a similar unofficial event in Italy in 2017.
The location and date for the challenge is yet to be confirmed, but it will take place in September or October.
