Sharon Gayter from England sets new treadmill distance record...
Sharon has run more than 300 marathons and more than 100 "ultra-distance" races, trained at the university's hydrotherapy pool and said the secret was to keep a steady pace. She said: "A lot of people can't control their pace. I've just been jogging along watching the heart rate, effortless really. If you keep it slow you can keep it going."
According to Guinness World Records, the previous record holders were Lee Chamberlain who ran 753.24km (468 miles) in July 2009 and a grandmother from Kent, Mimi Anderson, who ran 650km (404 miles).
