The Marathon Machine

by Banana Crumble | Oct 14, 2019

Eliud Kipchoge has become the first athlete to run a marathon in under two hours, beating the mark by 20 seconds. The Kenyan born runner ran the 26.2 miles  in one hour 59 minutes 40 seconds in the Ineos 1:59 Challenge in Vienna, Austria on Saturday. Sadly the time will not be counted as the official Marathon World Record due to it not being in open competition and he used a team of pacemakers.

When the Kenyan crossed the line he didn’t even look out of breath, and looked like he could run another 26.2 miles. An absolutely amazing accomplishment from this unbelievable human.

Eliud said after the race, “I’m feeling good. After Roger Bannister made history, it took me another 65 years. I’ve tried but I’ve done it. This shows the positivity of sport. I want to make it a clean and interesting sport. Together when we run, we can make it a beautiful world.”

Congratulations on your achievement!!!
