Coros Wearables, the makers of performance GPS watches, has named world marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge as its newest Pro Athlete Ambassador. In addition to the individual sponsorship of Eliud, Coros will become the official GPS Watch partner of the NN Running Team, which includes some of the top track and road runners in the world, including Eliud Kipchoge.
This partnership marks a significant stride forward for the brand as it looks to cement itself as the leader in performance focused technological innovation for the endurance athlete.
“Eliud is perhaps the greatest runner of our generation, if not all time,” says said Coros CEO Lewis Wu. “A talent like his does not come around too often and we could not be prouder to partner with such an inspiring athlete. It’s an honor for COROS technology and products to be used by the best runners in the world.
“The partnership also opens up possibilities to bring Eliud’s experience in running and training to the COROS platform together building better products for runners and athletes globally."
NN Running Team will be supplied with Coros watches and will be providing detailed feedback in return.
As part of the relationship, Kipchoge will take on a special role in the partnership as a Coros Pro Athlete Ambassador.
“I look forward to working together with their development team,” he says. “I will be giving feedback from my daily experiences with their products and I hope this will contribute to the development of the products and enhance the running experience for runners all around the world.”
Eliud and the NN Running Team have their eyes set on more racing opportunities and the Olympic Games next summer in Tokyo. The athletes will wear the Coros Pace 2 Premium GPS Sports watch, which weights just 29g and is designed with a focus on road running and personal bests. COROS is honored to support Eliud and his teammates as they continue their illustrious careers.
