Organizers of the historic race Ineos have confirmed that the race will take place on Saturday between 6am and 10pm EAT with the exact start time set to be confirmed by Friday.

Kipchoge will make a second attempt at running the marathon under two hours having done so for the first time in Monza, Italy in May 2017 where he came 26 seconds close.

This time, he says he has more confidence and mentally stronger to achieve the feat.
