The INEOS-159 challenge: Venue set for Kipchoge sub two-hour marathon attempt
October will see Kipchoge heading to Vienna to take on the challenge
The city of Vienna has been picked as the location for Kipchoge's second attempt at breaking the two-hour marathon.
It's not the first time Kipchoge has tried to break the two-hour marathon with his first attempt taking place as part of Breaking2 in Monza, a project set up by Nike in November 2016 where he finished with a time of 2.00.25.
The Venice location will see Kipchoge running the marathon on a multi-lap, 9.6km course centred on Hauptallee, the iconic long, straight and tree-lined avenue which runs through the heart of The Prater.
Each lap will feature Kipchoge running two 4.3km out-and-back stretches of Hauptallee with the turning points coming at the Lusthaus and Praterstern roundabouts at either end of the avenue.
