Altra Footwear’s Calum Neff Sets World Record for Fastest Marathon Pushing a Stroller

(Logan, UT — October 24, 2016) — Altra’s Elite athlete Calum Neff set the Guinness World Record for the Fastest Marathon Pushing a Stroller with a time of 2:31:21. Neff and his daughter, four-year-old Alessandra, competed in Canada’s Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday, October 16, 2016. He broke the previous record of 2:42:21 by 11 minutes, which was set by Michael Wardian in 2007. Neff was also the fifth Canadian and 15th male overall to finish. A Guinness World Record representative was waiting for him at the finish to present him the award.

Earlier this year on February 6, Neff set the World Record for the Fastest Half Marathon Pushing a Stroller at the Katy Half Marathon in his hometown of Katy, TX. For this race, Neff and his 11-month-old daughter Holland set the record with a finishing time of 1:11:27. He also won the race by nearly six minutes and had an average pace of 5:27 per mile. A Guinness World Record representative did not attend, so Neff used a GoPro to broadcast his run live on Periscope. Neff broke the existing record of 1:13:50, set by Travis Boyd in 2013.

Neff is expecting another daughter with his wife, Julie, which means there are more records to be broken. Neff tweeted “my stroller running career was just extended another 5 years… Neff 3.0 – lighter version coming March 2017.”
