Celebrated Marathon world record holder Eliud Kipchoge will on Monday, 17th April evening be on the world’s radar to make yet another world history in the streets of Boston, chasing a major win in Boston Marathon to add the title to his list of all the six majors in the world.
Kipchoge, unarguably the greatest-ever marathoner in the world, brags of four major marathons in the world, four times in London, two times in Berlin breaking the world record two times, Chicago Marathon and Tokyo Marathon.
Boston Marathon has features that make it outstanding and unique in the world. It is considered the oldest marathon in the world and is run without pacemakers. Its course is also one of its kind as it is mostly made up of hilly terrain.
The race kicks off at 4:37 pm East African Time. To follow the race live in Kenya, you can watch the race on the SuperSport Athletics channels.
Other Kenyans in the race will include Defending champion Evans Chebet, John, Albert and Mark Korir as well as Augustine Choge, who is Kipchoge’s training partner in Kaptagat.
Benson Kipruto, the 2021 winner will also be competing.
