Triple stroller half­marathon record bro­ken in Mon­tana

Canadian Running - - THE WARM-UP -

Peo­ple in Mis­soula, Mont., were as­ton­ished last year when Theresa Marie Pitts set the first Guin­ness world record for a woman run­ning the half-marathon while push­ing three kids in a stroller, but that record was bro­ken – first by Ash­lee Eskelsen in Mont­gomery, Ala., this past March (her record is 1:47), and most re­cently on July 15, again at the Mis­soula Half-Marathon by Cyn­thia Arnold of Pol­son, Mont., Arnold ran a blaz­ing 1:29. Her record has yet to be ver­i­fied by the Guin­ness or­ga­ni­za­tion.

“I feel re­ally good,” Arnold said two days af­ter her record-break­ing run. “I can’t be as fast with the stroller, so I’m not as beat-up as I might be with­out it.” The 34-year-old mother of three is rec­og­nized as an ac­com­plished run­ner in the area, hav­ing won the Gov­er­nor’s Cup half-marathon in Helena, Mont., in 2016.

The stroller is a BeBeLove triple jog­ging stroller. Fun fact: a fully-oc­cu­pied triple stroller weighs around 150 pounds or 68 kilo­grams.
