INEOS has a thirst for a challenge and a belief that No Human Is Limited. Bringing together some of the greatest minds and talent in sport allows us to take on great sporting challenges, enabling extraordinary athletes to achieve extraordinary things.

We love a challenge

Which is why we decided to take on one of the last remaining barriers in modern athletics, breaking the two-hour barrier in the marathon. Attempted by others, conquered by INEOS. Bringing together top talent from across the INEOS sporting family, and driven by grit, determination and rigour, the INEOS 1:59 Challenge supported Eliud Kipchoge to break the two-hour barrier in a time of 1:59.40.2.  Through innovation and advancement in technology and human performance the impossible was achieved.


Eliud Kipchoge Global Ambassador to The Daily Mile

As the greatest ever marathon runner, Eliud Kipchoge is Global Ambassador to The Daily Mile, a running initiative for primary school aged children. The free initiative, which is funded by INEOS, helps get children around the world running or jogging for 15 minutes every day at school, helping over 2.3 million children in 79 countries get active.


1851 Trust STEM Crew resources

INEOS and the 1851 Trust, a charity committed to taking science beyond the textbook by engaging young people in the cutting edge technology of high performance sport, have produced three new free digital learning resources inspired by Eliud Kipchoge’s historic sub-two-hour marathon. The resources take young people into the INEOS 1:59 performance team and explore the science and theory that went into the challenge.
