Marathon Champion Eliud Kipchoge

Kenya’s double Olympic champion and world record holder Eliud Kipchoge remains optimistic that he will perform another stunning Berlin Marathon.  

Kipchoge returns on September 25 to the same city where he set a new world record of 2:01:39 in the men’s 42km road race in 2018.  

“When I think of Berlin, I think of a flat course. I am thinking of the fastest course in the world. I am thinking that it is the only place whereby a human being can show his or her own potential of pushing the limits,” Kipchoge, who is the only person to run a marathon under two hours, said.  ” Kipchoge said.

A win for Kipchoge in Berlin would be his fourth crown in this World Marathon Majors race, having emerged victorious in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
