Not only Kelvin Kiptum made history at the London Marathon. Another 44 records were broken

Runners in handcuffs, wearing clogs and in costume manage to beat marks and enter the Guinness World Records

It wasn’t just Kenyan Kelvin Kiptum that made history in the last edition of the London Marathon, on April 23rd. He won the traditional race with a time of 2:01:25, a new course record _ he was 16 seconds from the world record of 2:01:09 held by Eliud Kipchoge, in 2022, in Berlin _, and had his feat inscribed in Guinness World Records. But he wasn’t the only one being watched at the finish line by Will Munford, the record book inspector.

Munford’s presence was due to the 71 proposals made by runners to enter the book. Of this total, 45 were successful, as they surpassed previous marks in the London Marathon, such as that of two runners who crossed the finish line handcuffed in the edition that had 49,000 entries, the largest in the history of the London Marathon.

Perhaps inspired by Rocky Balboa, Sylvester Stalone’s character in rocky 2from 1979, Alex Grady arrived at The Mall with a time of 2:38:52, Johannes Teunissen was the fastest wearing clogs, with 7:08:37.
