Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

AMY HUGHES ran into the record books in 2014 when she com­pleted 53 marathons in 53 days. In Septem­ber last year she set another record, run­ning the great­est dis­tance in seven days on a tread­mill – 521 miles. ‘Run­ning for up to 20 hours straight was a big chal­lenge, but I trained my­self to break it into chunks of time to man­age it,’ says the sports ther­a­pist from Cheshire, who was raising money for the 53 Foun­da­tion, the char­ity she set up to help dis­abled peo­ple get into sport.
