British woman completes 100 marathons in 100 days world record

An endurance athlete who has been running every day for 100 days has broken the record for completing the most marathons in consecutive days.

Kate Jayden, from Derbyshire, has completed a 26.2-mile run each day since January, covering 2,620 miles. She hit the milestone as she finished the Brighton Marathon on Sunday. The current female record is held by US runner, Alyssa Clark, who completed 95 marathons in 95 consecutive days, according to Guinness World Records.

On finishing, the 35-year-old, from Hartington, said: “I’m feeling geriatric mostly. I was just overwhelmed. I feel very privileged that I was able to take that journey and so many people have been in touch to say they have been inspired by it too.”

Mrs. Jayden initially set out on 1 January to run 2,620 miles – the distance a refugee would travel from Aleppo, Syria, to the UK as a way of raising money and awareness to help refugees. She then realized it would amount to running a marathon every day for 100 days, and would break a world record if she completed it.
