Led by Elgeyo Marakwet Women representative Jane Chebaibai, the women leaders lifted their hands to God and committed the athlete to His guidance.

34-year-old Kipchoge will become the first human being in the history of mankind to run 42KM in under two hours or exactly two hours at an average speed of 5.8KM/h.

Kipchoge is the current world record holder in running 42KMs at a time of 2.01.39 in Berlin on September 16, 2018.
