Eliud Kipchoge wins NN Mission Marathon. He is back.

When Eliud Kipchoge finished eighth in the London Marathon last October, we wondered if the great Kenyan was on the decline. He blamed an ear blockage and assured us it was a blip. Then he went away to plot his comeback.

The reigning Olympic marathon champion and sub-two-hour man took victory in the NN Mission Marathon in Enschede in 2:04:30.

Conditions were chilly with Kipchoge and others starting the race wearing gloves. Fortunately. the wind was not strong on what was a potentially exposed course.

Eliud Kipchoge wins NN Mission Marathon. He is back.

Paced through halfway in 1:01:43 – running alongside his training partner and fellow NN Running Team athlete Jonathan Korir – Eliud made his winning strike around 33km when the marathon great accelerated ahead of the field.

Minutes later, Kipchoge made his move and eased clear of Korir. He was on the way to an emphatic victory on the special looped course at Twente Airport.

Goitom Kifle of Eritrea also produced a splendid performance to trim two seconds from his lifetime best to take third in 2:08:07.

NNRT athlete Philemon Kacheran – who acted as one of Eliud’s pacemakers – continued to the finish and was rewarded with fourth in 2:08:47.

Kipchoge said, “It’s mission accomplished. Thank you to the great men and women who organised this race in less than 10 days. I can say that the NN Mission Marathon is the best ever. It’s good to organise in a different environment. It’s good to organise the meet during a pandemic to tell everybody that you can still run. This is the best race towards to a huge day at the Olympics.

While the race was closed to spectators, it was certainly open to the elements, but world record holder Eliud Kipchoge wins and felt comfortable.
