Our Ambassador, Eliud Kipchoge

Eliud Kipchoge is the world’s fastest marathon runner! On 12th October in Vienna, Austria, the Kenyan athlete became the first person ever to run a marathon in under two hours when he achieved the super human time of 1:59:40.2.

We’re excited that Eliud is working with The Daily Mile to get even more schools and nurseries signed up around the world. Like Eliud, The Daily Mile Foundation believes “No Human Is Limited” and wants to ensure every child has the opportunity to enjoy being physically active, outside with their friends.
