He will represent Isuzu in Kenya and engage in local activities to promote the D-Max.Kipchoge was gifted two Isuzu Dmax pick ups after his record breaking wins in the Berlin Marathon in 2018 and after beating the clock in the sub 2 hour INEOS 1:59 Marathon challenge in Austria.
She added; “Part of the proceeds will go towards the Eliud Kipchoge Foundation, which plays a role in promoting and nurturing young talent especially in Kaptagat, where Kipchoge trains.
