Waterloo, Ont. woman sets four-child stroller world record in the marathon
Jenn Weatherall and four others crossed the finish line almost simultaneously at the Ed Whitlock Half-Marathon, a part of Waterloo Marathon weekend. The 42-year-old pushed two strollers, containing four children, for 21.1k. The double-stroller-pushing mother completed the half-marathon in 3:2 4:52. She opted for a push-and-pull method with one of the double strollers out front and the other trailing behind. Weatherall also had a GoPro set up to capture race footage. The Guinness World Record for fastest half-marathon pushing a single child in a stroller by a woman is 1:27:34 (although not currently ratified, Julia Webb ran 1:22:57 at the Rock ’n’ Roll Chicago Half-Marathon last July).
