Charity worker and his dogs run the marathon every day for two months
Some people think twice before running for the bus but Aaron Robinson may have set a world record by running a full marathon every day before work for two months.
The charity worker and his border collies, Inca and River, have been getting up at 3am to complete a five-hour circuit of more than 26 miles around Wanstead and Epping Forest in east London.
By Saturday, they had run their 63rd consecutive marathon in 63 days – beating the previous record for a male by one day.
Aaron, who is waiting for confirmation from Guinness World Records, said he found it tough. ‘It’s quite hard to get enough sleep, get enough calories in and then go to work afterwards,’ he added. ‘You don’t really recover 100 per cent before you start the next one.’
He was raising funds for his charity Hope For Justice, which tackles human trafficking and modern slavery, saying: ‘It’s nothing compared to what they’re going through.’
