Kipchoge had been promised a new vehicle by Isuzu, if he broke the World record set by Dennis Kimetto in 2014.

However,he was able to set a new record after he clocked 2 hours 1 minute and 39 seconds (2:1:39) to smash the World Record previously held by Kenyan Dennis Kimeto with a record time of 2 hours 2 minutes and 57 seconds (2:2:57) that was set in 2014.

“We have signed up with Eliud because over the years he has demonstrated strength, resilience and reliability in his performance. He has not failed and that resonates well with our Isuzu D-Max that we are giving him,” said Charles Kariuki, Isuzu East Africa’s Chief Financial Officer.

Earlier on, the world-class runner had pocketed a cool Sh7m for training and personal use from Isuzu.

The 33 year-old is also current Olympic Marathon Champion.

On the other hand, Gladys Cherono crossed the finish line first in two hours, 18 minutes and 11 seconds to win the women’s race at the 45th edition of the BMW Berlin Marathon.

Another Kenyan, Edna Kiplagat finished fourth in 2:21:18.
