  • About #RunWithEliud The Daily Mile marathon challenge

    Eliud Kipchoge is the fastest marathon runner in the world! This October, he will take on an exciting challenge in Vienna, Austria – to be the first person ever to run a marathon (26.2 miles) in under two hours! Eliud loves The Daily Mile and wants every child around the world to take part!

    To show their support for Eliud, we’d like as many #DailyMile schools around the world to #RunWithEliud.

    Are you ready to #RunWithEliud? Get involved by running a Daily Mile Marathon and completing 26 Daily Miles by Friday November 29th. Or just do as many Daily Miles as you can by this date. Taking part is much more important and every Daily Mile counts!
