The 40th edition of the London Marathon will be taking place tomorrow (Sunday, October 4).
Although the men’s marathon has been watered down a bit after Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele pulled out due to injury, the world is anticipating to see how Eliud Kipchoge will perform.
In October 2019, the legendary athlete became the first man on earth to run a marathon in under two hours, when he clocked 1:59:40 in Vienna during the Ineos Challenge.
Kenyans on Twitter and different agencies have wished the world record holder and Olympic champion all the best.
World Champion Eliud Kipchoge led compatriots as they departed for London from Eldoret International Airport aboard a 56 seater chartered plane.

I read a tweet describing @EliudKipchoge as "The man with the most expensive pair of lungs" and it makes sense 😂😁 Mimi Kupanda stairs kufika tu 3rd floor huthreaten kunimaliza.
