Malaysian Completed 263km Indoor Run in 36 Hours
A Malaysian runner left Facebook users in awe after he documented himself running a full marathon in the comfort of his home.
Yim Heng Fatt kicked off his indoor run at 6am on 4 April and began covering a 50-metre route inside his house with breaks in between for eating, showering and resting.
The avid runner completed the run yesterday after 36 hours, clocking in 263-kilometres in total.
Yim said he chose to stop at the 263-kilometre mark because the number sounds like a lucky Cantonese phrase meaning “to live eternally.”
He shared a video of the 50-metre route inside his house which weaves through his living room, foyer, kitchen and dining area on the ground floor.
Yim wanted to prove that it’s possible for runners to stay active from the safety of their homes during the Movement Control Order (MCO), even if it might not be as effective as running outdoors.
