Eliud Kipchoge, the Kenyan long-distance runner widely regarded as one of the greatest marathon runners ever, set a new record pace at the 2023 Boston Marathon on Monday. Kipchoge, who has previously won the London, Berlin, and Olympic marathons, finished the race with a time of 2 hours, 2 minutes, and 37 seconds, shattering the previous course record by more than two minutes.
Eliud Kipchoge, who turns 39 next November, was the favourite to win the race and lived up to expectations, dominating the competition from start to finish. He pulled away from the pack early on and ran the rest of the race alone, crossing the finish line with a comfortable lead of more than five minutes over the second-place finisher.
The Boston Marathon, which covers a distance of 26.2 miles, is one of the most prestigious and challenging races in the world. The route includes several hills and requires runners to navigate through a number of towns before reaching the finish line in Boston’s Back Bay.
Kipchoge’s record-breaking performance is sure to go down in the history books as one of the most outstanding achievements in marathon running.
The Kenyan athlete has now cemented his legacy as one of the all-time greats, and his remarkable victory at the Boston Marathon is a testament to his incredible talent and dedication to the sport.
