Car Company Isuzu has promised to gift the athlete a truck after the challenge.

The decorated Marathoner has also received support from the political class.

On Thursday, President Uhuru Kenyatta phoned him and wished him well ahead of the race.

“I am feeling confident, you are in our prayer, my friend. I just wanted to pass that message to you. I am praying for you that you will be successful,” Uhuru said.

Uhuru told Kipchoge that Kenyans are fully behind him as he takes on the challenge.

Deputy President William Ruto jetted to Vienna on Thursday night to cheer the runner. On Friday evening, DP Ruto was spotted jogging at the Stadtpark, Vienna, Austria with Ambassador Robinson Githae and Sports Principal Secretary Kirimi Kaberia.

Prime Minister Raila Odinga also wished the Marathoner well.

Raila said: “We have faith that having done 2:00:25, this gallant son of Kenya and Africa will make it 1:59. Go, go Eliud, we are behind you for something new, something unlimited”
