The sub two-hour marathon is the last great barrier of modern athletics.
Eliud Kipchoge, the world’s greatest marathon runner, will attempt to break the two-hour barrier in the INEOS 1.59 Challenge, a special marathon being run between late September and early October 2019.
The event will be supported and managed by INEOS. A London venue is being considered.
“Running the fastest ever marathon time of 2:00:25 was the proudest moment of my career,” says Eliud Kipchoge. “To get another chance to break the magical two-hour mark is incredibly exciting. I always say that no human is limited and I know that it is possible for me to break this barrier.”
