Take on the INEOS Kipchoge 1:59 1 Minute Challenge in Vienna

To mark the third anniversary of the INEOS 1:59 Challenge where Eliud Kipchoge became the first person to run a marathon in under 2 hours, INEOS and Eliud Kipchoge have created a new challenge - the INEOS Kipchoge 1:59 1 minute Challenge.

INEOS Kipchoge 1:59 1 Minute Challenge
Hauptallee, Vienna
12 October
4pm – 6pm

Taking place on 12th October, the challenge asks runners to try and match Kipchoge’s pace by completing 352.6m in 1 minute. This will see runners needing to hit just over 21kmph, the speed that Kipchoge consistently ran at throughout the marathon to finish in a time of 1:59.40.2.

Returning to the Hauptallee, Vienna, the free to participate challenge will be open between 4pm and 6pm. Anyone taking part will need to register upon arrival where they will receive a timing bib. Runners can then attempt the challenge as many times as they like on the evening during the two-hour window. There will be two posts with timing mats that will mark the 352.6m distance with the data captured by Vienna City Marathon and shared with runners.

Anyone who takes on the challenge will be entered into a free-prize draw to win signed goods from Eliud Kipchoge.

The challenge will take place on the same day as the Vienna City Marathon Tribute to Eliud which will see runners in up to teams of two, challenge themselves to run as far as possible in 1:59.40.2. This challenge will run from 6pm – 8pm on the Hauptallee.
