Geremews career started in cross country running. He ran in the junior category at the 2010 IAAF World Cross Country Championships and placed 16th overall – he was not a point-scoring runner for the Ethiopian team. He returned to the same venue (Bydgoszcz) as a senior competitor at the 2013 IAAF World Cross Country Championships, though his 24th-place finish again left him out of the team point scoring.[1]

In 2012 he won the 10k Paderborner Osterlauf in Germany in 27:53 min.

He became the first person to win twice at the Yangzhou Jianzhen International Half Marathon, taking back-to-back wins in 2015 to 2016, which included a course record of 59:52 minutes – the fastest achieved in a Chinese race.[2] He won this race again in 2017 and 2018.

In 2015 he was the winner of the Ras Al Khaimah Half Marathon.

He achieved bigger popularity in 2018 by winning the Dubai Marathon as well as a second place in the Chicago Marathon.

At the 2019 London Marathon, he finished in second place behind Eliud Kipchoge with a time of 2:02:55, the third-fastest time in history.[3]
