Chris Solarz Sets 12 Hour Treadmill Record with 77.07 Miles

Hedge fund manager Chris Solarz ran 77.07 miles in 12 hours on a treadmill to set a new record with the Guinness Book of World Records.

“This was the most physically demanding of all of my six Guinness records,” Solarz said. “I knew that the record was just within my reach but I would need to get in the best shape of my life. After I put in 150 mile weeks for two months, I knew I could do it, but I still needed to execute. I had a perfect day and ended up breaking the record less than seven minutes before the 12 hour mark!”

He beat the prior record of 76.68 miles set in 2013 by Eusébio Bochons in Switzerland. Solarz did not leave the treadmill for the entire 12 hour period and ran at an average pace of 9 minutes and 20 seconds a mile.

Solarz owns a handful of other Guinness World Records.
