More About Reuben Kipyego:
Kipyego, a marathon specialist, made his debut in 2019 by finishing second at
the Buenos Aires Marathon in a swift time of 2:05:18. He lowered his PR at the Abu Dhabi Marathon where he was invited as a pacer. Kipyego told the press after the race that he was feeling good at 30K so he continued onwards to collect his first marathon victory. Since then, he has progressively lowered his PR, making him the fastest man in this year’s elite field.
