The 127th Boston Marathon has a strong field of competitors for an eagerly anticipated matchup.
The focus will be on Kipchoge, who is attempting to win all six of the World Marathon Majors by breaking the men’s course record.
The world record holder will be competing in the Boston Marathon for the first time since winning the Chicago Marathon in 2014, according to World Athletics.
The best marathon runner of all time is thought to be Kipchoge. He has won two gold medals at the Olympics. In addition, he holds the marathon world record with a time of 2:01:09 from the Berlin Marathon in 2022. Four of the six fastest marathons in history were completed by him.
Here are some quick details regarding THE GOAT:
On November 4th, he will turn 38 years old and was born in Kapsisywa, Nandi County.
Kipchoge is a Scorpio and stands 5 feet 6 inches tall.
Kipchoge is a husband.
Grace Suggut, who was Eliud’s first love, is his wife. In 2003, they first met. Grace’s brother introduced them to one another. The couple went to the same primary and secondary schools.
In 2003, when Kipchoge won gold in his first World Championship marathon in Paris, the two started dating.
