Ethiopian pair to challenge Kipchoge in London


Mule Wasihun and Mosinet Geremew, the Ethiopian duo who pushed the legendary Eliud Kipchoge to the limit at the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, have confirmed they will return to the road race on 26 April.

Geremew, 27, finished the race at 2:02:55 while Wasihun finished at 2:03:16.

Spencer Barden, Head of Elite Athletes, said:

“Last year’s elite men’s race was one of the best races we have seen for many years. Mosinet Geremew and Mule Wasihun pushed Eliud Kipchoge as hard as I have ever seen but ultimately could not hang on to the great man in the final two miles. But they will have taken confidence from last year and will come back this time round looking to cause a real shock.”
