baxus Posted September 15, 2021 Share Posted September 15, 2021 10 hours ago, Tywin et al. said: The host of a podcast I've gotten into recently ran seven marathons in seven days on all seven continents a couple of years ago. Imagine the recovery from that. There is a race in Sahara desert that consists of 7 marathons in 7 days, and you carry your own water and everything and keep track of where you're running because the track is obviously not marked. The first time I heard of it was when James Cracknell did it. The guy is 2x rowing Olympic champion, and after retiring he is doing all kinds of endurance feats - he rowed across Atlantic, ran that 7 marathon race in Sahara, did a row the English Channel - ride a bike to Gibraltar - swim the Gibraltar, rowed in the Boat Race in his late fourties (oldest person to win it) etc. If you like things like that, I'd suggest you look him up. 9 hours ago, Mudguard said: Some guy did 50 marathons in different states in the US over 50 days. Not sure if he's the guy you're thinking of, but I think Eddie Izzard did something like that, too. The biggest feat of endurance I can think of is this guy doing 50 Iron man triathlons in 50 days in all 50 states in the USA.
