Eliud Kipchoge from milk Seller to Marathon Billionaire plus list of properties and companies he owns.

The current London Marathon champion and INEOS competition victor, Mr. Eliud Kipchoge, has openly shared the challenges faced by his single mother in meeting their ends.

At 38 years old, Kipchoge reflects on his father’s absence, with the only memory being an old photograph, as his father passed away during his early childhood, leaving him with no recollection of seeing him since.

Despite the hardships of his upbringing, Kipchoge has attained significant wealth through his prowess in athletics.

  1. Recognition from ISUZU:
    In acknowledgment of his remarkable achievement at the 2022 London Marathon, the Isuzu car company gifted the accomplished marathon runner an Isuzu Dmax. Additionally, after triumphing in multiple competitions nationwide, Kipchoge received two more double-cab Isuzu Dmax trucks from the company.
    Born, raised, and educated in Kapsisiywa, Eliud Kipchoge believes in staying connected to the place that witnessed his transformation from obscurity to an Olympic champion. In Kapsisiywa, Narok County, he built an impressive home, enjoying the fruits of endorsement deals with Nike and NCC, earning substantial income. From the limited production of 159 Isuzu Dmax vehicles produced in his honor to a deal with Adidas, Kipchoge’s monthly earnings from competitions alone exceed 3.5 million Kenyan shillings.

Breaking his own record, Kipchoge received an additional 3.5 million Kenyan shillings, while winning the marathon brought in almost 13 million shillings. Completing it in less than two hours earned him an extra 78.5 million Kenyan shillings, totaling 38.5 million Kenyan shillings for winning the race.
