Dec 2013…

Over the Christmas period, Eagle AC member Joanne Fearon ran a record 12 marathons in 12 days on a treadmill in order to raise funds for the neonatal ward at Cork University Maternity Hospital.

Club member Gerard Down went along to help out on day 1 and stayed for all 12

Starting on the 13th of December on a treadmill in Mahers Sport in Cork City, Joanne had an accumulated time of 39 hours 03 minutes and 21 seconds by the 10th day. As everything was recorded and witnessed, that should be a new Guinness World Record for the fastest time on a treadmill for running 10 marathons in 10 days.

After setting the record 10, Joanne went on to complete another two marathons over the following two days. Her times for the marathon have been remarkably consistent…3:53, 3:55, 3:55, 3:55, 3:55, 3:55, 3:53, 3:57, 3:55, 3:53, 3:55, 3:51

In the end, over €12,000 was raised for the neonatal ward.
