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.”
