10 OUT OF 10

A sub-three-hour marathon is a dream for most runners – so imagine running 10 of them in as many days. That’s exactly what Adam Holland has done, writing his way into the record books in the process. The 29-yearold completed the marathons in a total time of 28 hours 37 minutes, giving him an average marathon time of 2:51:44. Holland is no stranger to long-distance running, having run a whopping 287 marathon and ultramarathons, but he’s particularly proud of this record-breaking run. “It’s a big achievement,” he said. “I’ve taken quite a lot more time off than I thought I was going to.” Holland set the record at Saxon Shore Seaside Marathon Series ( around the Kent coast, bettering the time of former record holder Rik Vercoe by 1 hour 13 minutes.

About Men's Running

For any of you reading this magazine for the first time, I hope this will be the beginning of a long and exciting journey, both with MR and with running. For me, though, it’s also an ending of sorts: this is my last issue as editor of the magazine (sob, sob). From narrowly beating a steam train over 14 miles to being trounced by a horse over 24, via near-death at the Ennerdale Horseshoe and elation at the London Marathon, it’s been quite the three years. The best part, though, has been interacting with the MR community, in person and online, and hearing about the countless ways in which running has improved your lives. From weight-loss heroes to those who have used running to improve their mental health, ours is a sport filled with inspiring stories of self-improvement. When I spoke with Paul Sinton-Hewitt recently, the founder of parkrun told me he started the event because “I wanted to be with people – and running is about people.” And what a strange, brilliant, eclectic bunch we are. Having the chance to meet many of you, and put together a magazine about a subject as universal and life-changing as running, has been a great privilege. Thanks for reading.
