Eliud Kipchoge. If you follow marathon records at all, Eliud Kipchoge is someone to you. This Kenyan runner is the world-record holder and will try to be the first person to break the two-hour barrier in a marathon. Kipchoge currently holds the world record of 2:01:39 at the Berlin Marathon.

This was set on September 16, 2018. For example, world record-holder Paula Radcliffe appears three times in the fastest-performances list. Marathon. Eliud Kipchoge (Kenya) 2:01:39. 4:38.4. Berlin, 2018. This list is a chronological progression of record times for the marathon.World records in the marathon are now ratified by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), the international governing body for the sport of athletics.. Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge set an official world record for men of 2:01:39 on September 16, 2018, at the 2018 Berlin Marathon.

The only woman ahead of them on the all-time list is Paula Radcliffe, whose 2:15:25 has stood as the world record since 2003. Radcliffe, 43, is no longer racing competitively and serves as an. On a swirly Chicago morning, Brigid Kosgei delivered a dizzying head-twister of a performance to blow away Paula Radcliffe’s world marathon record.

The Briton’s mark of 2hr 15min 25sec had stoo. Eliud Kipchoge has made history by becoming the first person to run a marathon distance in under two hours. The 34-year-old Kenyan long-distance runner completed 26.2 miles in 1 hour 59 minutes 40 seconds at the Ineos 1:59 Challenge in Vienna, Austria.

In the Olympic distance events (1500, 5k, 10k, steeple, marathon), no current record has been on the books longer than Paula Radcliffe‘s 2:15:25 in the marathon. Kimetto’s Berlin performance is approximately 9.2 per cent faster than Radcliffe’s. Kipchoge’s time trial is 11.1 per cent faster. Kipchoge’s marathon time trial is currently the outlier.

He is often referred to as the world’s best marathon runner – not Kimetto and not Radcliffe, who are on the books with official records. Atkreipkite dėmesį, kad mes sakėme „įrašus atitinkančius kursus“. Todėl 2017 m. Gegužės mėn. „Nike’s Breaking2“ maratone Eliud Kipchoge 2:00:25 neveikia sąraše. Šis laikas neskaitomas įrašų tikslais, nes nebuvo laikomasi standartinių varžybų taisyklių ir skysčių.

As well as those officially attempting Guinness World Records titles, elite runner Eliud Kipchoge achieved the fastest time to run the London Marathon (male) with a time of 2:02:37. Kipchoge’s winning time was the second fastest marathon ever, only 58 seconds slower than the world record he set in Berlin last year and also means he now has the.

  • The guy at 0:30 in the camp pants is a professional runner. He’s the only 3 time finisher of the Barkley Marathons and is featured in the awesome documentary: The Barkley Marathons: The race that eats its young. Highly recommended

  • 1:13 I come back to this vid just to see this one lady. How do you NOT know how to run? When i was a baby I used walking Tutorials

  • Amazing how i come to see Paula achieving greatness and all i see in the comments is “doping”, “doper”, What utter bollocks, Okay then, every American athlete and every European athlete and Kenyan long distance runner who ever did anything remotely great was a doper, No athlete has ever won anything cleanly, is that where were at or is it just Paula?

  • @ 2:26, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit, to keep a 800m pace for an entire marathon?? anybody could do it??? u overdose on your adderall before this expo or something?

  • I don’t know if anyone notice that the treadmill didn’t slow down for the asian guys running and fell down. While white runners appeared to have the treadmill slow down when they couldn’t keep the pace of the treadmill.

  • 1:11 Did that woman just say she was trying to move her arms faster to get her legs moving faster too? Sounds like early on set retardation.

  • People sit at home, sipping their beer, thinking this is easy!!! These people are straight up special!!! They are the best that humanity has to offer! Fun watch regular folks eating pads trying to match it Lmfao….amazing ��

  • I think the head bob made her brain numb to the pain her body was experiencing, so it had helped inadvertantly….but i’m just amazed that her neck muscles didn’t seize up.

  • I used to run until I found it boring. Because what will give me that I will run hmm 10 km in a very good time? Apart from a few moments of satisfaction… Today I run purely recreational, I prefer martial arts. At least I will learn to defend myself and my loved ones, not to pat pointless kilometers and then brag about them on Facebook or anywhere.

  • 200 meters in 34 seconds= 100 meters in 17 seconds.
    The fastest sprint, usain bolt ran 100 meters in 9.70 seconds, or 44 kilometers an hour.
    This man ran an entire marathon at half Usain’s speed! That’s crazy.

  • She is about the same as Lance,denies dopping for many years but every sane person knows these kinda times are only possible with some premium juice. But still, this performance is outstanding even for a drugie, so respect.

  • Get there real runners not fake ones and you will realize that spped is not a problem. A problem is maintainig it for 2h… Dont like this vid

  • Bea: come over.
    Kipchoge: Girl my car is in the shop and you live 26 miles away.
    Bea: My parents wont be home for three hours.
    Kipchoge: �� �� �� ��

  • This is what i call elite runners: Kipchoge, Kimetto, Kipsang, Biwott. Bekele missing only and it could be best of the best gathering.

  • at the time Paula ran 215 or so, there were no drug controls. And this woman expects us to believe het record is clean when for the most part 100% of all records were fake. Woman you should just shut up.

  • Me encanta su historia… Después de ser menospreciado por su ” profesor” de e. Fisica por su movimiento singular de cabeza… Hoy le dió cátedra a su comentario tonto de que jamás podría ser una gran atleta

  • Maybe she would have gone even faster with better upper body technique. Surely having your 3 or 4 kg head bouncing around and arms flying sideways, hands being thrown backwards are uneconomical and creates wind resistance which must have slowed her. But her rhythm, her legs speed, foot drive and stride length are fantastic.

  • But just looking at the way she bobs her head tells me the performance had to be helped by some ergogenic or yet unk substance. i might be wrong. and another against her is she is not African. These are just facts.

  • The odd stupid comment! Especially regarding `the record in my country`. So your countries runners aren`t very good! it happens, deal with it!

  • Right there and then, the treadmill test separates the runners with natural ability and those that have some work to do. The dude at 2:41 you can tell right away even though it was just a short snapshot that he has the proper running form down pat.

  • Oh only a 5:38 first mile. Lol man, they look so bored at that pace, which will almost make one forget what a blistering pace that is for 99% of the population. These women are such incredible athletes.

  • I met Paula Radcliffe back in 2006 in person and honestly her humbleness as a person and talent as a runner makes her the number ONE in the RUNNING WORLD.

  • Absolutely incredible. Sad to see that it’s almost 15 minutes slower than the new fastest time and 12 slower than the fastest one in an actual marathon. Eliud Kipchoge, 2:00:25, fucking legend.

  • As she turns onto the Mall and the camera focuses on her face on, look at her hip rigidity! She has supreme core stability and incredible running efficiency. There’s almost zero energy wasted by vertical oscillation. That’s why she was so good, not EPO!

  • imagine her being a Kenyan or Ethiopian athlete…

    Now what would you say about her since the record hasn’t been broken since 2003? ��

    Think about that for a second

  • I respect her time and she has been a good runner despite her bad form. She had a mid-foot strike which puts a lot of pressure on your feet compared to having a forefoot strike like Kipchoge, Bekele and Gebrselassie, hence the most likeley reason for her having surgery on booth feet around her mid-foot.

  • Yeah, she is just trying to cover the suspicions…. damn stupid. The best runner in my country, is a MALE, and can’t beat her record. BULLSHIT

  • …ummm are they really runners or just regular people trying to run his pace, because their form is atrocious. I want to reach through my phone and help them…

  • i dont know if it was clean WHAT were the testing standards then and the fact she is a hometown favorite may influence or have officials look the other way.

  • you only have to look to the fact that she trains most days even now, when elite level competition is most likely past her. Running is in her DNA, no shortcuts required

  • Paula is a crazy athlete, clean or not she´s a freak of nature. It´s a pleasure to watch even though admittedly the head movement seems to be a bit of a flaw from an aesthetic perspective:)

  • watch a documentary called bigger strong faster… every top athlete gaurenteed taking something. 100% it’s the only way to be the best.

  • I think we have seen the future record holder in the marathon in this race and his name is Kipchoge. His final kick to the finish was effortless and crossed the finish line with all smiles. Kipsang was a bit more deflated.

  • This record will never be touched without being on EPO. This is very close to Olympic A-Standard for men for 2016… IF she was clean, this is by far (not even a discussion) the greatest world record in any sport, men or women.   

  • Paula always had this “different” running style….whatever she did (i.e/head-bobbing) bloody worked for her! A fantastic runner:)

  • This was 11 years ago, April 13, 2003 and Paula Radcliffe has held the marathon record since October 13, 2002. In the modern era, only Ingrid Kristiansen has held the record longer, for nearly 14 years. (Wikipedia: Marathon world record progression)

  • Moving her body too much? Looks like an idiot? SMH.
    This is why YouTube sucks sometimes, because you get comments like this from people that probably have never even run a 5km race before let alone own a WR.

  • I’ve noticed that about girls, they usually don’t have very good form, though I can imagine after 26 miles it can be pretty tough to keep form.   But at the same time it looks like she was running this way the whole time.

  • i ran a marathon in under 3 hrs. no big deal. But a 215 marathon is monumental achievement for a man to confirm his elite status but for a woman to do this is stretching the boundaries of credulity.

  • Did anybody tell Tufa that the Marathon is not a 5 or 10 k race. It just seems that her speed toward the end of the Marathon is unnatural to the event. Not even a trace of fatigue, and her legs look as fresh if not fresher than the beginning of the race. I pretty sure Tufa could have broken 220, absolutely sure.

  • Technique is in the head. I truly believe if you’re running your body and mind at max effort, that form will completely break down, but you’ll achieve the unthinkable.

  • I have only won one race in my entire life but alas, it was a large race, with about 100,000 other contestants, after I won all the other contestants were killed while I was held captive for nine months.

  • Thank you so much for the upload. Really fun to watch. Are you planning toupload london marathon 2016 if possible as well? That would really be great! This year’s race is looking even more stacked than ever. Really spectacular times are expected…

  • Why don’t marathon races have a mirror at some point near the end to help the leaders see who’s behind, instead of constantly turning, causing them to slow, slightly?

  • I don’t think the traditional approach is the fully the right way to go. People like Kipsang may not have the track speed to compete with the others. He has a lot more slow twitch muscle fibers so it would not work out for him. However for the track people they can can move up in distance as they get older. Also, I think it’s easier to gain stamina and endurance to run longer distances than to gain or increase raw speed to run shorter distances.

  • Can someone please explain to me, what’s the difference between the ‘Elite men’ and the rest of the other crowd running? Why are the elite men running alone from the crowd?

  • Wow….greatest runners.  Who is the arse that keeps telling them to move to different places?  They just finished running a marathon at a very high level and fat boy is trying to give orders.  Lol.

  • Excellent!  it was nice to see this posted so I could watch and enjoy it.  I have taken part in London Marathon 6 times in the past.  Would like to do it again soon:)

  • Came to the comments and immediately remembered that video about how the running community is toxic. What is wrong with all of you? It’s an entertaining video.

  • the only drugs long distance runners can take are diuretics, and they are one of the most easily detectable drugs, so actually they’re not ‘juiced up’, otherwise we’d know about it by now.

  • I see myself quite clearly at the start. Hardly recognise myself but brings back tingles to see it. I remember the tension in the air as we waited for the gun, the only noise the helicopter circulating over head then the sudden burst of speed by Paula Radcliffe as she burst from the line and sped off to run every mile about a minute quicker than me!

  • 1:41:54 I don’t blame her for telling that camera person to move away! They were really close…

    Regardless, unbelievable performance from her and probably will remain the best marathon race ever by a woman for a long time.

  • Young guy from Ethiopia Tsegaye Mekonnen at 18 years old in 2013/2014 did better than Paula Radcliffe he got like 2 hours and 4 minutes and Radcliffe at 29 years old got around 2 hours and 15 minutes!

  • Zatopec tops Paula on gurning and head shaking (he was also great contorting his arms) but Paula unarguably has the better legs. But it was interesting to hear Paula’s name in the same breath as references to God. P.S. Paula’s world record for the marathon will last a much longer time than God’s three records ever did.P.P.S. I’ll never forget Paula’s “Hello” on Bradgate Park to a fellow runner so many years ago. Such a truly nice lady.
