New World Record Surgeres

I am honored to be one of few athletes in the world to have broken the 400Km (250 miles) distance in 48 hours, and also to have done it on three different occasions on different surfaces. I put a lot of that success down to some world class crewing that I was luck to receive. Those three occasions were:


426.178Km (almost 265miles) at Brno, Czech Rep March 16-18 2007, gave me the 48 hour World indoor record. This was also the first time a runner ran 200km plus for 2 consecutive days (223km and 203km) Crew man Alan Young with help from Petra.

And then less than 2 months later:


401.114Km (250+miles) at Surgeres, France in May 2007. Crewman: Michael Farrell.


405.220Km (251.815 miles) at Longford, Ireland August 22-24 2008, gave me the World Record for 48 hour on a treadmill. Chief Crewman Alan Young
