The BBC has just released news that the Belgian Stefaan Engels, who suffered from Asthma as a boy, has just completed 365 Marathons in a year! This is obviously a New World Record and an incredible achievement; each Marathon was run at an average of four hours and beat the previous record of 52 consecutive Marathon races at 65 years old (Record according to BBC) by a LONG way! Stefaan ran a total of 16,878 kilometers!

This amazing feat comes just days after Doctor Andrew Murray completed his run from Scotland to Sahara averaging 34 miles per day!

Watch the video of Stefaan's amazing achievement here and watch Dr Andrew Murray in action here.
