World marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge will headline the 2022 Tokyo marathon set to be held next month in Tokyo, Japan.
The two time Olympic games marathon champion will be making his debut in a country that he won his double Olympic marathon gold last year.
After dominating London, Berlin and Chicago, Kipchoge had only remained with Tokyo, Boston and New York races in the World Marathon majors that he has never competed in.
Today, his management, Global Sports Communication (GSM) run by NN Running announced that the four time London marathon winner will be at the starting line-up.
“Eliud, the world record-holder and the first man in history to run a sub-two-hour marathon – achieving the feat at the INEOS 1:59 Challenge – has spoken of his desire to compete and win all six Abbott World Marathon Majors, regarded as the world’s top six marathon races,” the statement added.
