Eliud Kipchoge has started his training ahead of a busy calendar year that includes the World Marathon Series in 2023.
In the World Marathon Majors series, which includes the Tokyo, London, Chicago, Berlin, Boston, and New York marathons, Kipchoge not only wishes to compete but also win all six events. Kipchoge also created a path at his training facility in Kaptagat that resembled the uphill Boston course in order to visualize the Boston Marathon course.
The 39-year-old’s sixth victory in the six-race World Marathon Majors series is at stake when he travels to Boston for his next visit.”This is the right time to train on the course which we have nicknamed ‘Boston’ here in Kenya. It’s an uphill and tough course over 40 kilometres,” said Kipchoge.”The two races are held on different continents. While Berlin is a flat course, Boston is uphill and needs a lot of patience, hard work to go through, hence unpredictable,” he said
On November 5, he will hit the streets to finish what was bound to happen at Central Park after finishing the work in Boston on April 17.
