LU Honours Mr. Eliud Kipchoge, EGH

Pursuant to Laikipia University Charter, 2013 Section III, (21) (4) (k) on the conferment of Honorary Degrees and upon recommendation of the University Senate and approval thereof by the Laikipia University Council, the University has the pleasure to present Mr. Eliud Kipchoge to Kenyans and the international community for the award of Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa) during the 7th Graduation Ceremony to be held on Friday, 6th December, 2019 at the Graduation square, Main Campus.
The University Senate in making this award noted that Eliud has made tremendous contributions in the realm of sports. The Senate specifically recognizes his most recent achievement of becoming the first human in history to run a sub-two-hour marathon. In a remarkable feat of endurance, Eliud delivered his “moon-landing” moment by crossing the finish line in a mind-blowing time of 1:59:40 in Vienna, as he delivered on his pledge to prove that “No Human Is Limited’’. Further, Eliud has been crowned Male Athlete of the Year for two consecutive years (2018 & 2019).
Laikipia University invites Kenyans and the international community to celebrate with us this outstanding and humble athlete who continues to give his best to inspire humankind.
