Lady runs marathon number 366 in 365 days – and sets a new world record
The 41 year old Danish lady Annette Fredskov from the little town of Naestved has set new standards in the world by running 366 marathons in 1 year. It is the first time in the world a person has run a marathon every single day for a year.
She has run 15,443 km or the equivalent to twice the length of the entire Danish coastline. She has worn out 20 pairs of shoes in a total time corresponding to 76 days.
On the daily marathons Anette Fredskov has been accompanied by at least two other runners.
Eventually she got plenty of support from running friends, people from the smal town of Naestved and runners from
around the world, who have signed up out of sheer enthusiasm for her project.
Annette’s race was also a fight against multiple sclerosis. When she was told that she should probably not expect to ever run a marathon, she wanted to find out what her limitations were – and she could actually go on, but she will stop now.
Annette Fredskov’s mission has made her free of symptoms from sclerosis.
