"No human is limited" is Eliud Kipchoge's most famous quote. It came into existence in 2019 after finishing the INEOS Challenge at a record time of 1:59:40.2.

Eliud Kipchoge is estimated to be worth $3.5 million, wealth acquired mostly through the marathon races that he has taken part in. It has also been revealed that Kipchoge earns a staggering $50,000 per event minus all the bonuses.

Nike has sponsored Kipchoge for at least two decades and he always puts on Nike Vaporflys on most occasions when racing. Research shows that the shoe has a carbon fibres and foam combination that offers around 4% of more energetic efficiency, helping the runners shave three minutes or more off their marathon times.

Kipchoge's diet revolves around healthy African meals with the athlete consuming meat once a fortnight. Eliud's training camp is 30 kilometres away from his Eldoret home.

Eliud Kipchoge has unique customized earphones that he uses to listen to his favorite jams especially when outside training.

The earphones are estimated to be in the range of Sh20,000 to Sh30,000 if you include shipping costs.

The earphones uses bone conduction technology which means involves sending vibrations to your inner ear without covering your ear.

Since these headphones don’t block or even touch the ear canal, they allow him to hear other pedestrians, passing cars, and any other potential hazards on the road.
