Water­loo, Ont. woman sets four-child stroller world record in the marathon

Canadian Running - - THE WARM-UP -

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).
