Twitter Web App : Ahead of INEOS 1:59, to analyse the course, how it could be improved and the optimum running line, the team drove a LIDAR system to scan the 3D environment and create a ‘point cloud’.

This resulted in millimetre accuracy of every elevation change.

Twitter Web App : Having almost proved it possible coming tantalizingly close in Monza in 2017, Eliud knew in his heart and mind that it could be done, he had convinced himself it was possible and just had to convince the world of the same.

🧠 Mind & Body…

Twitter Web App : The selection of Vienna was the culmination of an extensive worldwide search that started with a map of the world and ended with a pinpoint in the Austrian capital.

🛣️ The Course…

Twitter Web App : Ensuring that Eliud Kipchoge’s sub-two-hour marathon attempt took place in the best possible weather conditions was one of the most challenging parts of the whole endeavour.

☁️ The Weather…

Twitter Web App : If the pace car had run 0.1KPH too slow for the two hours, it would have taken two hours and 34.3secs to run the marathon distance, an error big enough to have derailed the entire Challenge.

The team had to make sure that did not happen.

🚘The Vehicle…

Twitter Web App : The INEOS 1:59 Challenge didn’t just write a new chapter in the history of human endeavour. The INEOS 1:59 Performance Team also created a completely new way to run marathons.

🏃The Pacemaking Formation…

Twitter Web App : 100% of me is nothing compared to 1% of the whole team.

Eliuds historic time was made possible through a perfectly executed strategy focussed on optimising key impact areas.

Now, for the first time, we have laid the 1:59 Performance strategy bare.
