In February we were approached by Fulham local, Alex O’Mahony and 3 friends who had decided to set themselves a personal challenge…
The Guinness World Record Attempt
On Friday 20th May 2022, Alex O’Mahony, Toby Willis, Bradley Malpas and Ethan Judge will be attempting to set a Guinness World Record in trying to complete
– four marathons in four countries in under 24 hours –
Mind over matter
Alex, Toby, Bradley and Ethan are a group of good friends who all enjoy running and have participated in events up to marathon distance and in some cases beyond. They were inspired to combine their energy and enthusiasm to both attempt to set a World Record and raise funds for their chosen charity – Mind, one of the UK’s oldest and largest mental health charities, providing much needed support and assistance to those struggling with issues.
As you may know, here at Profeet we love a challenge whether it’s simply getting off the sofa and starting to run, scaling up to a 5K or 10K working up to a half or full marathon… or pushing beyond, so we were immediately curious and very happy to get involved.
As Alex explained:
Each marathon will be run in a relay between the four of us. We’ll be startinrun in London (UK), fly to Maastricht and run (Neth), over the border to Belgium and then finally Germany and fly back from Cologne..”
The timing breakdown is shown below, showing that it is doable, but will certainly be tight!
Their target marathon time is 3hr 30 for the relay of four.
