Watch Kipchoge make history live here:
Eliud Kipchoge will attempt to run a sub 2 hour marathon in Vienna on Saturday 12th October. To do that he'll need to run at a 4:34 pace (minutes per mile). That's fast. How fast? To find out I rented a treadmill and got running.
To stay up date the best place is the Ineos website:

  • To put this into context of ordinary sprinters and middle distance runners this is the equivalent of running 105.5 consecutive 400m races each in a time of 68.25 seconds, or 52 consecutive 800m races plus an additional 600 metres in a time of 2m16.5s for each half mile (800m) ..... if my calculations are correct :)

  • Those elite East African runners aren't carrying all the meat and bone we Euro peasants do. But then they weren't serfs for centuries doing stooped labor, i.e., we did evolve-or-die toward more "robust" physiques. Slave-serfdom came relatively late for them. Modern anthropology says we were taller, leaner back before "civilization."

  • stiffness in the hip is a huge consequence. Your leg definitely has the kick but your hip is not allowing you to extend that far and forcing it causes strain across the muscles resulting in fatigue. Stretching, and strengthening your core/glutes will help A LOOOT even if you are over weight. In fact i would argue its better to stretch and strengthen the core if u intend to use running as a means to lose weight. Running is absolutely the best thing to do but it evolves if you can enable your body to fundamentally run at your full capacity.

  • His morphology is such, that a 5 minute mile to Kipchoge feels like your 10 minute mile does to you. It's almost all genetics, well...98% genetics, and maybe 2% training. Kipchoge could probably run 6 minute miles the very first time he ran.

    Peter RabbitPeter RabbitPirms Mēneša
    • i would not say its 98/2. Like yes, he wouldnt of been able to do it if he wasnt an african male with lucky genetics, however there a fair few people who are similar to him. He trained for hours everyday and it is alot harder than you think.

  • You have to understand that most people that are good at long marathons come from Africa. They don’t always have all the technology necessary to achieve their goals, but they do have all the mountains and roughed terrains. Running in these terrains makes you more powerful. Just like the best ice swimmers come from countries that have cold environments all year round it is the same with marathon runners which lots of power in their legs and stamina in their lungs. They adapt to their environment and thus become better when training. Genes play a huge role, but it’s not that huge if you don’t put the effort into it.

  • Still a great video. Please ignore my previous ill informed comments about the time. I've confused decimals with minutes and seconds. So 4.58 mins in decimals is 4mins 34 seconds.

    Bob SpannerBob SpannerPirms Mēneša
  • Great thought provoking video and you have a good presentation style. It doesn't change the video message but isn't 2 hours marathon speed 4.58 minutes per mile not 4.34. Still ridiculous but marginally easier. If this has already been pointed out then sorry for being a pedant but didn't read all the comments. Keep up the good work.

  • I'll tell u a fact actually treadmills make us easy to run and waste just the half energy and fat which we run on a proper ground as the treadmill surface move backward and acc to Newton's third law "Every action force has an equal and opposite reaction force that acts simultaneously" so the thing is that you apply less force on treadmill to move whereas on the normal ground you need to apply more force.

  • I knew a kid that ran at that speed when I was in high school. He would full out sprint the 5k (3.1 miles). Brought our school to state and got third. We used to do relays, 800m, and 1600m and 100m hurtles, and he'd stand there at the end watching people basically gasping for air, some puking, asking me why I was so tired. He didn't even seem to be breathing. He was basically the T1000. Some people are just soooo fast- you don't really get it until you race them.
