Distance running superstars Eliud Kipchoge, Kenenisa Bekele, Joshua Cheptegei and Geoffrey Kamworor are all participating in a global team relay marathon organised by their NN Running Team.

The marathon, to be held on 6–7 June, will consist of 4 × 10.55km stages and is open to all runners worldwide who wish to form a team of four to cover the marathon distance.

Runners compete “together and alone” – participants can run safely alone at their own location while competing in a team posted on the virtual leaderboard.

“I and my teammates are really looking forward to taking part in the relay on this wonderful initiative,” said Marathon world record holder Kipchoge.
