What is the world record for a marathon and why is it important?
What is a marathon world record?
It’s an extraordinary achievement.
It is a record of the endurance and dedication of runners who have run a marathon, even if it’s just one day.
The race has been run at least twice in Australia, in 2018 and 2020.
Its also the world’s longest running distance.
How is it possible?
There are many reasons for a record.
For one thing, the marathon is a relatively small event.
In 2019, the runners who finished the race were a mere 13,200 strong.
And if the race is run on a track, it will be even smaller.
So the marathon needs a relatively large amount of space.
Secondly, the course is long.
As with any distance, there are also some sections that can be longer.
There’s a race course on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, which is only 3km long.
The Guinness World Records website lists that it is the longest marathon course in the world.
But the length of the race means it is not as easy to set a world record.
The race itself is a challenging affair, which requires athletes to overcome obstacles.
Many runners fall short.
What’s the most important thing to know?
In 2018, runners were able to break the previous record of 1:03:38.
Now, in 2020, the record was 1:07:18.
A marathon runner can do it twice in one day?
That is a feat of endurance that has never been achieved in human history.
Marathoners have also broken the world distance run in one hour and 47 seconds, but only in 2008.
Why do I care?
Marathons are an amazing feat of athletic achievement.
It is a unique event that requires many people to work hard and overcome great adversity.
It has been estimated that about 80% of marathons run on the roads.
It has been reported that one in six people will have experienced some sort of physical or mental stress at the start of the marathon.
Do I need a race?
Marathoning is a great way to lose weight and build endurance.
If you want to run longer distances, it’s also a great exercise for building muscle and stamina.
Marathon training is a good way to build your running form and improve your cardiovascular fitness.
Who is running the race?
There are four marathoning events in Australia.
Each of them is run by a local or national team.
To qualify for a race, a runner must have completed a marathon.
That means they must have finished the event within three months of the start date.
Also, a person must have been part of a team of runners.
Are there any restrictions on running marathones?
Some races are open to runners who are under the age of 21, which means they cannot compete in the same event as a 16-year-old.
Other races are restricted to members of the public.
Are there age restrictions?
For those who are not 18, age restrictions do apply.
Some events have a minimum age of 17, while others are open for the under-18 age group.
What’s included in a marathon?
A 10K is the most common marathon course, and is run at the end of a two-mile loop.
This is followed by a 6K, a 10K and then a 1,000m run.
Another popular event is the half marathon.
The half marathon is run in three separate stages, in either a marathon or a 10k.
Where can I watch the marathon?
There is no official marathon TV channel.
However, there is a channel on the internet that is called the Commonwealth Marathon.
You can find it on the Commonwealth Games website.
