Can you keep up with Eliud Kipchoge’s Pace for 200m?

So they asked: “Can you keep up with Eliud Kipchoge’s pace for 200 meters?” P.S. 12 mph is hard AF 🤣. The “Eliud Kipchoge’s pace” challenge came up for the 2018 Chicago Marathon expo attendees – but with amusing outcomes. 

On a 20-foot-long treadmill, different runners attempted to keep up with Eliud Kipchoge’s pace, but on a 200 meters distance. Some runners used running shoes like the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo (shoes great for Achilles Tendonitis), others went barefoot, or even dress shoes.

Remember: Kipchoge (Marathon GOAT) – ran this pace for more than 2 hours 🤣.

The Marathon GOAT

8 – the number of marathons Eliud Kipchoge has won in a row (9 when we include Nike’s Breaking2), 7 of which are majors. The Abbott World Marathon Majors.

Eliud Kipchoge, the Marathon GOAT, shaved over half a minute from the previous marathon world record in the 2018 Berlin Marathon (2:01:39). Interestingly, Kipchoge was so fast on the streets of Berlin that 2 of his 3 pacesetters dropped off 15 minutes into the blistering race held on 16th Sep 2018.

In fact, Kipchoge’s third pacesetter dropped off almost halfway into the race – after which Marathon GOAT actually sped up 🤣. Amos Kipruto (also a Kenya) was second in the race (2:06:23) – 5 minutes after Kipchoge.
