Kipchoge threatens NRG radio over trademark violation

World Marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge has written a demand letter to NRG radio for breach of trademark rights.

Through lawyer Donald Kipkorir, NRG radio is accused of using Kipchoge’s name on their social media pages and online blogs.

The station did not only use the athlete’s name in their radio station but also on other radio stations under their umbrella including Fun X and Choice Radio.

The letter further indicates that they fraudulently informed their listeners that by following their social media pages they will gift Kipchoge Eliud with a car, something that the INEOS challenge winner never asked for.

It is from the notice that he has demanded the radio station to:

  1. Remove his images, names and references whatsoever on their platforms.
  2. Issue an apology for violation of his rights, misuse of the name, images, and reputation.
  3. Issue written notice that they have complied with the above demands.
